Brief guide to commonly
used terms in this booklet

Academies are publicly funded schools that provide free education to pupils of all abilities. They are
established by sponsors from business, faith or voluntary groups. They receive funding directly from
the Department for Education. Each academy has its own admissions policy.
Community schools are run by the local council. It employs the school’s staff, and runs the admission
procedure. Their running costs are met from public funds which come through the local council (mainly
council tax and grants from central government). They provide free education. Community schools
in the same borough share an admissions policy.
Department for Education (DfE) is responsible for education and children’s services.
Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) An Education, Health and Care Plan (often referred to as an
EHCP) is for children and young people aged up to 25 who need more support than is available through
normal school based special educational needs support. EHC Plans identify education, health and social
needs a child or young person has and sets out the additional support required to meet these needs.
Education, Learning and Skills a group of services in Lambeth Council that brings together all services
for education under one banner.
Foundation schools have their running costs met from public funds which come through the local council.
They provide free education. Each foundation school has it’s own admissions policy.
Free Schools are all-ability state-funded schools. They are non-selective and free to attend, and not
controlled by a local authority. Each free school has its own admissions policy.
Local Authority (LA) The borough/ local council.
Ofsted The national Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted), is the government department responsible
for inspecting schools and reporting on standards of achievement and the quality of education provided.
Parents/carers refers to all carers and legal guardians.
Special schools cater for children who have an Education, Health and Care Plan and whose special needs
are such that they cannot be met in a mainstream school. All children attending a special school must have
an Education, Health and Care Plan.
Voluntary-aided schools are set up by voluntary bodies, usually churches, but have their running costs
met from public funds which come through the local council. They provide free education. The voluntary-aided
schools in Lambeth have very close links to their church, and are often referred to as church schools. Each
voluntary-aided school has its own admissions policy.

online and on time! Online applications can be made from 1 September 2021. Pages 18 and 19 show

devices so you will be able to submit your CAF via your mobile phone using the App.

Step-by-step guide to online
  Admissions applications
  This is just a short step-by-step guide to help you submit an online application.
  However, please note that there is also a FAQ and an Admissions tutorial function
  (which can be accessed before you register onto the online system).

  Step 1 – Create an account The child’s parent/
  carer needs to log their details. Only one parent/carer
  can do this as the system only allows one parent to
  register one application per child. This is so that an
  identified email address can be linked to a named
  person. It is important that the person registering has
  parental responsibility for the child and both child and
  parent lives at the same address noted on the online

  If you already have a London Grid for Learning
  account use that log in and check your details are still
  correct before continuing. Otherwise you will need to
  create an account.

   Step 2 – Child’s details The parent/carer must
   input their child’s name as listed on their birth
   certificate or passport in this section. They must also
   use their (both the parent and the child’s) current
   address. The online secondary school applications
   are only for children born between 01/09/2010 and

   Step 3 – Add your school preferences
   Using the pre-populated drop-down lists,
   1. Select the borough the school is in.
   2. Select the school you want for the first preference.
      You can also choose a school using the ‘map’
      or ‘keywords’ function. You can apply for up to 6
   3. Please ensure that you select the correct school
      especially when there are schools with similar
      names in the same borough.
   4. Once the school has been added you can also
      add details about any siblings or relevant medical/
      social details if applicable.
   5. If the school being applied to needs you to also
      complete a Supplementary Information Form
      (SIF), this will automatically be flagged up by the
      system. Please ensure that all SIFs are completed
      and returned to the school in time.
   Schools selected can be moved up or down, added
   to or deleted up until the 31 October 2021 deadline.

Once the schools have been selected, you must check whether they are correct before moving to the next step.

                                                                  Step 4 – Submit application
                                                                  You will then be required to read and accept
                                                                  the declarations.
                                                                  Once you have read the declaration, click on
                                                                  the ‘submit application’ button.

                                                          Step 5 – Attach documentation
                                                          Once the application is submitted, you will receive an
                                                          email confirming submission with the reference number,
                                                          along with a reminder about what schools require SIFs.
                                                          You must then upload all the necessary proof of
                                                          address documentation (as stated on page 8-9)
                                                          using the ‘Attach a document’ button from this
                                                          page. You can also attach any medical or social
                                                          or other such documentation you wish to be
                                                          considered by 31 October 2021.
                                                          You must ensure that you re-submit your application
                                                          if you make any amendments before the 31 October

We are fully inclusive and
welcome children from Church of
England families, other faiths and
denominations, as well as those
without a faith.
Our Christian vision and values are
the foundation of all that we do:
we are ambitious for every child,
and are committed to ensuring that
every child achieves their God-given
potential and is able to ‘let their light
shine before others’ (Matthew 5:16).
We believe children can be a light
for others by being a positive role
model which is why we provide
all children with opportunities to
become young leaders; in particular,
we run successful Sports Leader
and Reading Leader programmes
which benefits other members of the
school and the local community.
The importance we place on working
