Starting Primary School in September 2020

Offers of primary school places for September 2020 were sent out to Rutland residents on the national offer day, 16 April 2020, and parents were offered 14 days to submit a written response to their offerThis deadline has now passed.

If you have received an offer of a place but have not yet responded, we will contact you to offer a further 7 days to submit your response.  Failure to respond by the deadline may result in your offer being withdrawn.

The online Admissions Portal is now closed so responses can only be made by email.  Details of how to submit your response will be included in an email that we will send out to you.

 A late application may still be submitted for a primary school place for September but it is important to bear in mind that some schools may already be full.  If you are a Rutland resident you can download and print out a copy of the Primary School Application Form or if you would prefer to receive a copy in the post please contact the Admissions Service on 01572 722577 or email admissions@rutland.gov.uk to ask for a copy to be posted out to you.  Please note that you cannot submit a late application online.  If you live in another local authority area please contact your own Council for information about how to submit an application for a Rutland school.

Each local authority within England is responsible for coordinating the primary school admissions process for children resident within their local authority area.  This means that parents must submit an application to the Council where they live, even if they wish to apply for a place at a school in another local authority area.  Full details of the application process can be found in our Primary School Admissions brochure 

More information about school admissions is available from the Department for Education.  If you have any further queries about the primary school admissions process please contact the Admissions Service on 01572 722577 or email admissions@rutland.gov.uk
