Please note that we have been made aware of an issue with the software that manages our online school applications service. The issue is reportedly causing automated confirmation emails to be sent out twice to parents during the application process. We apologise for any confusion that this may cause and we are currently working very closely with our software supplier, who have identified the issue and are committed to resolving the problem with minimum delay. Please disregard any duplicate emails that you receive relating to the applications process. We would like to reassure parents that this issue will not affect the submission of school place applications online or have any impact on the process of allocating school places.
Starting Primary School in September 2016
Rutland County Council’s online school admissions service is currently open to parents/carers of children resident in Rutland who are starting primary school for the first time, into reception year group, in September 2016. The closing date for these applications is 15 January 2016.
Before you begin to submit your online application it is important that you read the relevant information to ensure that you are aware of the full application process and that all necessary information is included within your application. This information can be found on the Starting Primary School in September 2016 page of this website.
If you wish to apply for a place at a school on faith grounds, you must also submit a supplementary information form alongside your application. For more details about the supplementary information form please refer to the admissions brochure or contact your preferred school direct.
If you have received a letter from Rutland County Council regarding the primary school application process you will see that your child has been allocated a ‘UID’ number which can be found in the heading of the letter, next to your child’s name. You should have this UID number to hand when applying online as it will assist you in completing the online application form. If you have not received a letter please contact us as soon as possible so that we can check that we have your child’s details and arrange for the admissions information to be posted out to you.
The closing date for primary school applications is 15 January 2016.
To submit an online application please click the ‘Apply Online’ link at the bottom of this page.
