Junior school admissions

If your child attends an infant school, you will need to apply when their child is in Year 2 for a junior school place to continue into Year 3.

Children attending an infant school that were born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017 are due to start junior school in September 2024. Parents need to apply for a junior school place by 15 January 2024.

If a child has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) the application closing date is 31 October 2023.

In Telford and Wrekin, children that attend the linked infant school are given additional priority when applying to the linked junior school. Linked infant and junior schools in Telford and Wrekin are below:

This table shows the linked schools within Telford and Wrekin.
Infant school Linked school
Church Aston Infant School* Moorfield Primary School
Donnington Wood Infant School Donnington Wood Junior School
Newport Infant School Newport Junior School
Wrockwardine Wood Infant School Wrockwardine Wood Junior School

*Church Aston Infant School does not have a linked junior school. Instead, Moorfield Primary School has 17 additional places in Year 3.

Children that attend a primary school do not need to apply for a Year 3 place and will continue to attend primary school until they go to secondary school after Year 6.

How to apply

To apply for a junior school place you will need to complete and submit an online application form using the link below.

If you want to apply to a primary school instead of a junior school, you should submit an in-year application during the summer holidays in 2024. It is best to still apply for a junior place in case a place is not available at your preferred primary school.

Visit our School Admissions Portal to apply for a school place

Parents who apply before the closing date will receive an email with the outcome of their application on Primary National Offer Day – 16 April 2024.

Late applications will be considered after National Offer Day and after all on-time applications have been considered.

Parents of children with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) will receive their final plan with a named primary school by 15 February 2024.
