Applications for Reception - Year 6

If your child was born between 1st September 2014 and 31st August 2015, you will need to apply for a primary school place starting in September 2019 when the applications open in November 2018. All applications for pupils to start Reception should be made online to the local authority.

If you wish for your child to join our school from Year 1 - 6, you will need to complete an 'In Year Common Preference Form' which can be downloaded here. Once completed, please return this to us.


If you are not offered a place at the school you requested you may wish to consider the following:


You can appeal against the decision to refuse your child a place at your preferred school(s). By doing this, you will automatically be placed on the waiting list for your higher preference school. In the meantime, you should accept the place you have been offered by contacting the school directly. This will ensure your child has a place in September and it will not affect your waiting list position or the appeal.

If you wish to appeal for a school in a different local authority, you should contact the relevant council for further details.
