School Admissions

Information about the admissions process and related education matters is contained in the Guide to Education Services (attached below). Before applying for a place it is important that you read this document as this will help you with your application. 

You can enrol your child in a reception class at a primary school in the September following the child's 4th birthday. 

You may defer entry to the reception class until later in the school year but by law your child must start school by the term after their 5th birthday.

Apply for admission to Nursery in September 2015

The closing date for admission to nursery in September 2015 was 20 February, 2015.

You can still apply online below but application forms received after the closing date are considered as late and therefore considered after those received on time. This means your child may have less opportunity to be offered your preferred school.

Apply Online

You can now apply for admission to Nursery in September 2015. Please read the important information listed below, further information can also be found in our Guide to Education Services

I understand that...
  • Only the person(s) with parental responsibility for a child can apply for admission.
  • Where more than one person has parental responsibility, it is the parent's responsibility to come to agreement over school preferences listed on the application.
  • The Local Education Authority (the LEA) will only accept the pupil's home address and not that, for example, of a child-minder or grandparent. The LEA may request proof of address to validate an application.
  • A school place can be withdrawn if fraudulent information is provided on child's application.
  • Non-EU residents must provide a photocopy of their visa before the LEA can consider an application.
  • A place in Nursery does not guarantee a place in Reception at the same school (a new application for Reception must be submitted at a later date).
  • If no preference is given, or the application form is submitted late then it will be less likely that a child will be able to attend the school of your preference. In the event of oversubscription to a school, applications for places will be dealt with by applying the admissions oversubscription criteria as detailed in the Guide to Education Services.
  • Expressing a school preference does not guarantee admission to that chosen school but it will give your child priority over children whose parents have not expressed a preference for that school on application.

Changing schools during the school year

If you move home and need a place at a new school, or if you wish to transfer your child to a new school due to problems at your present school it is strongly recommended that you discuss this with your current Headteacher first. If you still wish to change schools please complete a School Transfer form which is available from schools.
