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

Apply for a place

The deadline for applications for September 2018 was 5pm on Monday 15 January 2018. We will send offers of places to those who applied on time on 16 April 2018.

Applying late means you have less chance of getting your preferred school and that we may not send your offer out till after the usual date - 16 April 2018.

This is because we offer places to on-time applications first, and places at your preferred school may have already been taken by on-time applicants.

But we will treat your late application as on-time if we get it by Friday 2 February 2018 and you include evidence of a good reason for being late such as a recent move to the area or exceptional medical reasons.

You must send the evidence with your late application. If you’ve recently moved to the area we need evidence including either:

a solicitor’s letter showing the completion date; or
a copy of the rental agreement showing the start date before Friday 2 February 2018.

We may ask for further proof that you’ve recently moved such as a Council Tax or utility bill.
