Starting School

Children are normally admitted to school at the start of or during the reception year, that is the school year in which they become 5. Parents of children born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013 who are due to be admitted in September 2017 will be required to apply to the local authority where they live for a place in the reception class.   

 

You can view the booklet for parents,  Starting School Booklet (PDF document opens in new window), and download a copy of the  Starting School application form (PDF document opens in new window), but we strongly recommend that you apply for a place using the online facility. If you do not have access to the internet, you can collect an application form from your local school.

 

Please do not use the online facility or this application form if you are applying for nursery place - you should contact the school for information about the application process.

If you require any advice about applying for a school place, please contact the School Admissions Service General Enquiries Line: Tel: (01234) 718120.

Closing Date for applications

15 January 2017.
