This year’s application round for Reception places for September 2019 is now open.
By law a child does not have to start school until the term following the fifth birthday. However, most children start school in the September following the fourth birthday.
If your child was born between 1st September 2014 and 31st August 2015 they are due to start school in September 2019 and you will need to apply for a school place by 15th January 2019. All children will be offered a full time place. All admissions are administered by the Local Authority.
On 16th April 2019 letters will be dispatched to all parents who submitted an application form by the January deadline, offering a place at one school. If you have been refused a place at your preferred school you can appeal.
Applications received after the January deadline will be considered after the first round and this means that the outcome of your application will not be determined until late June 2019 at the earliest.
