JFS 11+ ADMISSION ARRANGEMENTS FOR SEPTEMBER 2015
The first round of 11+ offers for places at JFS have been made via local authorities. Second round offers will be made by your Local Authority on 30 March. Those who are successful in the second round will hear from their local authority after 31 March. All those on the waiting list will hear from JFS directly after 31 March. If you have not received an offer from JFS at this stage help us during this period by not telephoning the School. Rest assured the Admissions Officer will be working hard to process the acceptances and establish whether there may be further places we can offer. We appreciate this is a stressful time for families and your courtesy towards the Admissions department would be appreciated. Whilst offers are still being made it is not necessary for you to lodge an appeal at this stage. Thank you for your patience.
Please note that the deadline for application to Year 7 for September 2015 has passed. You may still make an application, but this will be considered only after the first round of offers have been made.
You will be required to complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF). In addition, you will also be required to obtain 3 points on a Certificate of Religious Practice (CRP) if you wish to be considered as a priority applicant. Both the SIF and CRP must be sent directly to JFS once they have been completed. The deadline for receipt of the SIF and CRP is 27 October 2014.
Shabbat attendances at a Synagogue are required to obtain some, or all of your points on the CRP. Applicants will be required to register with a Synagogue in order to have their attendances recorded; these attendances must then be verified by an authorised signatory of a synagogue. We suggest that you make contact with your Synagogue as soon as possible to find out how your child's attendance will be recorded.
Once offers have been made and places have been accepted, we will invite students to attend testing, as we have done in the past, in order to place students into the correct Tutor Groups. The accelerated and mixed ability Tutor Groups as well as the gifted and talented programmes will remain unchanged and will not be affected by this process.
Our DfE number is 304 4033
We look forward to receiving your application.
