You need to submit a copy of your 18/19 council tax bill with your CAF.

yes proof of address, Council tax bill definitely.

but I mean for each school preference, for example if I apply ashlawn, do I need upload the MFL test result letter?

You don’t need to add results for 11 plus or mfl as they hold these already and can marry up with your application.

Is there a separate question where you are invited to give reasons for the preference?

If not, this is probably what it is for.
Section 86 1(b) of the School Standards & Framework Act says that parents must be given the opportunity to state any reasons for their preference. (Most parents leave the answer blank, and most answers are ignored anyway because they have nothing to do with the admission rules!)

For example, some schools have a social/medical oversubscription rule. This part of the form would be where a parent could provide appropriate information and evidence from professionals.

Of course, there might be a separate question about social/medical issues.

I haven't got the form in front of me, so I'm only speculating.

I didn’t add proof of address here I just emailed a copy of the council tax bill to the email address in the instructions. Have I done it wrong?

I found it a terribly confusing system. I attached a copy of my council tax bill to every application because I couldn't see a place to add it more generally. Then realised afterwards that you simply have to email it to the council afterwards, with no confirmation that they have received it or that it is a valid document. They have the option to upload documents, why not just let you attach the council tax bill there? Or, you know, look in their own system like they did when I obtained a copy last week!
