Manchester City Council

Schools, education & childcare Apply for a reception class place for September 2018

How primary school places are decided

Each school has a set number of places for the school year, starting in September. If too many people apply, the school uses its admission rules to decide who gets a place.

You should put at least three schools on your application – more if you like. If you put fewer, and you miss out, you could have little choice about where your child goes.
