In defining a child’s ‘normal’ place of residence, we will not accept a business address, a landlord’s tenant’s address or a childminder's address as a basis for allocating school places, nor will future addresses be accepted. Second homes with a short-term lease, will not be accepted as a normal permanent place of residence.

Proof of residence will be requested from you to prove your home address. You will have to provide scanned copies of at least two of the following list of documents (they must be within 3 months old at the time of application) and complete your Council Tax number in your online application. Please remember to submit the required proofs when you apply online.
