Released: 8 January, 2021
Families with children due to start school this September are reminded that there are just days left to apply for a place.
The deadline for applications to start in reception at primary or infant school is midnight on Friday, 15 January 2021. Parents/carers of children currently in Year 2 at infant school should also apply for a place at junior school by 15 January.
Nigel Jupp, Cabinet Member for Education & Skills said: “Parents and carers who return their applications on time have a far greater chance of receiving a preference place then those who miss the deadline. So I would urge anyone yet to apply to do so as soon as they are able to.”
Children born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017 will be eligible to start primary or infant school next September.
The quickest and easiest way is to apply online on our website, where people can find all of the information they need.
Those unable to apply online should call the admissions team on 033 301 42903.
