I checked with the school last year and they told me to mark no, but I don't think it will make any difference as the cross sibling allocation and collection of evidence is dealt with directly by the school. I had to take in the longer versions of birth certificates for both children. I think I got a call or letter asking me to do that within a few days of handing the SIF in. That was the procedure for girls school but I assume it would be the same for both.

Response from county hall: Thank you for your email.
I would submit ‘yes’ to the sibling question. The Watford Grammar schools currently have a cross-sibling rule and will check this when alerted to it by the tick in the sibling box.

Kind regards

Time to change my submission

We had this response from county last year and marked yes on the CAF. Like Hera says, it probably doesn't make a difference, the SIF is where the schools gather their information from. The boys school contacted me soon after half term to take full birth certificates in.
