Remember to apply for your child’s primary school place

Date Published: 24 October 2019

Parents of children starting primary school next year are being reminded to apply for a place at their preferred schools by the national closing date of 15 January 2020.

If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016 they will be eligible to start primary school in September 2020. 

You can submit your child’s application on our Admissions Page, where you will find full details and guidance to support you through the application process.

“Now is the time to submit an application if your child is starting primary school for the first time next year. It’s important to submit your application before the national closing date and we would again encourage parents to make full use of the three preference options they are given when applying for a school place. You should also take time to read the admissions policies of your child’s preferred schools before submitting your application.”
Councillor David Wilby, Cabinet Member for Education

We've published a short video guide explaining the importance of using all three preference options. Please watch the video, shared below, before completing your child's application form.
