Time to Start Looking at Primary Schools
You are now able to apply for a primary school place for your child if they turn four on or before 31st August 2021.
Applications must be made before 5pm on 15th January 2021.
The easiest way to apply is online at the School Admissions website.
We recommend that you put at least three schools on your application form. There is no guarantee that you will get your first choice of school and if you only put that school on your form then the local authority will simply allocate you a space in any school that has a place available.
These are unusual times and primary schools are trying their best to allow parents to see schools in some way. Some schools are allowing pre booked visits at the weekend or in the evenings, some are doing online open days. Please start looking at the websites of any school you are considering and sign up to their visits or online sessions as soon as possible. We would recommend doing this now and making your application well in advance of the deadline.
