We will occassionally collate some of the most frequently asked questions regarding admissions, if you do not see an answer to your question please do get in touch with your local authority or the school and we will endeavour to respond to your query at the earliest opportunity.

Will my application be processed if I only submit a Supplementary Information Form?

No, you must submit BOTH Common Application Form (CAF) and a Supplementary Information Form (SIF). The Common Application Form is available via Brent or your Local Authority. The Supplementary Information Form is available on our website. Failure to do this will result in a delay in processing your application and/or your application may/will be rejected.

How do I submit my application forms?

The Common Application Form (CAF) can be completed on-line or posted to your Local Authority.

The Supplementary Information Form (SIF) can be emailed to: admissions@islamia.brent.sch.uk

or by post to: Admissions, Islamia Primary School, 129 Salusbury Road, London, NW6 6PE

(If submitting an application by post, we strongly advise you to send it via recorded delivery)

My child was not offered a place, how can I put my child on the waiting list?

If your child has not secured a place, he/she will be put on the waiting list automatically for the remainder of the academic year (until July). However, if you wish for your child to remain on the waiting list for the following year, you must contact Brent School Admissions on 020 8937 3110 to advise them of this.

If my child is on the waiting list, when will my child be offered a place?

If your child is placed on the waiting list, you will only be offered a place if and when a vacancy arises. Kindly note, there is never any guarantee any spaces will become available.

One of my children have been offered a place but my other child/children have not, when will I secure a place for them? 

Your other child/children will only be offered a place if there is one available and this is only when a current enrolled child leaves and in accordance with our Admissions Policy which is available on the school website. Please bear in mind that you will have to manage school drop offs and pickups if you have other children attending different schools and lateness does affect your child’s education.

Who can countersign my Supplementary Information Form (SIF)? 

Only official Imams employed or appointed by the Mosque or religious centre as an Imam are authorised to sign this form. Signatures of Madrassah teachers and unofficial Imams will not be accepted. * Mosque or Religious centre for the purposes of this form, is defined by a place where regular Friday (Jumu’ah) prayers take place.

Can I apply even though I do not live in Brent? 

Yes, you can, however please refer to our Admissions Policy for further information about how applications are processed.

Can I apply if I live overseas?

You can only apply if you have a fixed abode in the United Kingdom.

If one of my children is enrolled at Islamia Girls Secondary School can I claim this as a sibling?

No, a child is only considered a sibling if they have a brother/sister or step-brother/step-sister attending Islamia Primary School only.

Is there a deadline for applying?

There are no deadlines for In-Year Applications however there is a deadline for new Reception (September start) applications, which is usually on or around 15th January. Please ensure you refer to your Local Authority for further information.
