Starting school

From mid September 2021 you can apply online for a reception school place. If you do not have access to a computer you can go to your local library and ask a member of staff to help you submit an application.

The closing date for making an application on time is 15 January 2022. All applications received after this date will not be considered until after the national offer date of 19 April 2022. Late applications will be considered in the second allocation round.

Visit our Admissions Portal to an application for a school place

Once you have applied online you will receive an email confirmation.


When will I find out what school my child has been offered?

For all on time applications you will receive an email informing you which school has been allocated on 19 April 2022.

Please note we cannot discuss the outcome of applications before 19 April 2022.

For all children with an Education, Health and Care Plan, you will receive your final plan with named school by the 15 February 2022.
