Starting Primary School in September 2020

The application process for starting primary school for the first time in September 2020 will open in Rutland mid October 2019 when full details of the process will be available on this page of our website.

Parents of children who are due to start primary school in September 2020 must submit an application to their 'home' local authority.  This means that an application must be submitted to the Council where you live, even if you want to apply for a place at a school in another local authority area.  For example, if you live in Rutland but want to apply for a primary school in another county, you must submit your application to us.  If you do not live in Rutland but want to apply for a place at a Rutland school you must apply to the Council where you live.

The Rutland application form will be available online or as a paper copy, and will allow you to submit up to 3 preferences of primary school, located in any local authority area.

The national closing date for applications will be 15 January 2020.

A brochure, 'Starting Primary School in September 2020' will be available to download from this page of our website.  The brochure will explain the process of applying for a primary school place and will offer information about primary schools in the Rutland area and where you can find further information.

In the meantime, if you have any queries about the primary school admissions process please contact the Admissions Service on 01572 722577 or email admissions@rutland.gov.uk
