Primary school places and admissions

Make your application

The main primary school application period for September 2021 finished at midnight on 15 January 2021.

You still need to apply if your child is due to start in reception, or go from an infant to junior school, in September 2021. However, your application will be considered as a late application.

Late applications are not considered until all on-time applications have been considered and allocated.

For late applications received after the main application deadline and before the offer day, we will aim to offer a school place on the offer day. However, this is not always possible. If you don't receive an offer on the offer day, or if you make a late application after the offer day, we will aim to offer a school place as soon as possible.

Please note: You should read the primary school admission guide before you start your application. This document contains important information about how we will consider your application.

Important: Is this application for a primary or infant school place starting in reception in September 2021 or for a child moving from an infant to junior school?

Yes, let's continue

No, take me to the correct application
