To apply to Sacks Morasha Jewish Primary School, two forms must be completed:
1. Common Application Form (CAF)
All applicants will need to fill in a CAF, where possible online. If you live in Barnet you must apply through the London Borough of Barnet. You can list up to six schools on your form, including schools outside the borough. If you live outside Barnet, you can still apply for Sacks Morasha but you must submit your application form to the council where you live.
2. Supplementary Information Form (SIF)
In the event that a class is oversubscribed, priority for admission to the school will be given to applicant families who have satisfactorily completed a SIF. Following our consultation, the SIF requirements have changed and families will now need to gain points by meeting various criteria.
In order to gain ‘priority’ for your application you will need to gain THREE points out of a possible four points. Two points are available for attendance at an orthodox shul between June 2017 and 31 December 2017. If you attend shul at least 18 times, you will get two points. If you attend 14 times, you will get one point. (Please be aware that every shul will have their own system for recording points. It is advisable to contact your shul office for more information.) One point is also available for Jewish learning and another for volunteering.
In each instance, you will need to get the form signed by the relevant organisations for each section you fill in. Please ensure you leave ample time to get your SIF signed off before the closing date. Once fully signed off, please return the SIF to the School Office.
Where space is available, we are able to offer in-year admissions to other year groups. If you are interested in moving your child to the school, please contact the school office – they will see if a place is available and will be able to advise you further.
Please email [email protected] if you have any questions about our application procedure and policy, or require help completing the application form. Emails sent to this address are kept confidential and are read only by the governor responsible for admissions and the School Office Manager.
Where an applicant cannot get their SIF signed for any reason, they should liaise with the School Office, who will seek to assist them further where possible.
