Church References for School Applications
For Secondary School Applications for 2021:
Please submit your Supplementary Information Form (SIF) for a church reference to the church office by 30th September for 2021 secondary school applications. Forms will be returned before half term.
SIFs are available from the individual school's websites. Please download these, complete your part and then post to the church office (details on the 'contact' page) or drop into the black post box in the porch at the Parish Hall in Chipstead. They will be completed and ready for collection from the church office before half term.
How do we measure church attendance?
If you and your children attend St Botolph's, your names will have been recorded for track and trace purposes at every service you have attended since we re-opened on 19th July for public worship, and then added to the register.
Before lockdown, and from when the interregnum started (September 2019), a weekly register was kept in the church and the chapel and families were asked to sign this at the end of the service they attended.
What about when the church was closed due to Covid-19?
When looking at applications, the period when the church was closed due to Covid (15th March to 19th July 2020) will not be taken into account.
