Birkbeck Primary School

Passports & Visa Applications

If parents ask staff to countersign passport and visa applications, this will only be an acceptable request for children currently on roll in our school.  As staff are required to disclose personal information, this service is offered at the complete discretion of the individual with the ability to sign.

Please be aware that:

  • We will always need at least one week’s notice.  Our priority will remain with the business of the school and at busy periods this could mean a longer period of time is needed.
  • Application forms/photographs can only be countersigned by a member of staff who has known the both the child applying for the passport/visa and the parent (s) for at least two years

We will not make a charge but suggest donations of £10 to the school fund, which benefits all children directly, are welcomed.
