Applications have opened for Primary School places

Applications are open now for parents to secure primary school places for September 2020.

If a child's date of birth falls between 01/09/2015 and 31/08/2016, families will need to fill in an application for a primary school place for next September.

The application period began on Monday, September 23 this year - and parents have until Wednesday, January 15 next year to submit their choices.

Those who apply online will receive an email confirmation once their application has been received – and will also get confirmation about a child’s school place sooner than a paper application form.
