Proof of Residency

The Fernwood School has a history of being full, and a large number of applications have been refused.  For schools which are full, priority is given to pupils who live within the catchment area (a copy of the full list of admission criteria is published in the Going to School in Nottingham booklet).

The Governing Body requires documentation from every applicant with regards to their home address.  It is necessary to request this from everyone to avoid places being gained as a result of fraudulent or misleading information.  In such circumstances, places will be withdrawn.

As confirmation of your home address, please provide one piece of original documentation from each of the categories listed below, by 31 October 2020 to The Fernwood School at the address below.

Category 1 Category 2 Category 3

Letter from Child Benefit Agency showing child’s name and home address

Tax credit letter showing child’s name and home address

Child Trust Fund Statement of Account/Young Saver Statement

Council Tax Bill

Bank Statement

Utility Bill (not including mobile phone or credit card bills)

(both of which should be dated within the last 6 months)

Unfortunately, unless this documentation is received by the school the application will be treated as out of catchment.

Due to the current situation, we request where possible that parent/carers bring copies of the required proof of residency for catchment addresses only, in a sealed envelope with their child’s full name and contact details of the parent on the front of the envelope. You will be asked to place them in a box by the Reception staff.

We will not unfortunately be issuing receipts as in previous years, but admissions staff will contact you at a later date if we need to discuss any documents with you.

If you are not clear about what information is required please do not hesitate to contact Mrs A Hopkinson or Mrs H Kirkland on 0115 9286326 or admissions@fernwoodschool.org.uk.  Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
