Everyone must apply for a school place, as there is no automatic entry for any school (click here).
Before you apply for your child’s school place for September 2023, please make sure the following applies to you:
Applying for your child’s primary school place is such an exciting first step into education.
We’ve made it quick and easy to apply online through the parent portal
We work hard to make sure everyone is happy with their school place, but demand is high. We really don’t want anyone to be disappointed, so do make sure you select three schools and send the application before the deadline on Sunday 15 January 2023. After this date all applications filed on time will be considered together, ahead of any submitted late.
If your application is late the school place your child gets might not be local to you because priority will be given to those who applied on time. There is no automatic entry for schools.
If you’re applying for an education, health and care plan (EHCP) and you think your child might attend a specialist school, it is still important to fill out an application for a mainstream primary school place. This will ensure they will have a school place in the autumn. If you need any help, the school admissions team will be available to you Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays 9am - 4pm. They will be offline to parents on Tuesdays and Thursdays to focus on the applications received.
The results for the September 2023 primary school applications received by Sunday, 15 January 2023 will be made available on primary school offer day – Monday, 17 April, 2023. Starting school is a big milestone and a very exciting time for children and families alike. We wish you the very best.
