Admission to First and Primary School 2012/2013

The allocations for Reception places starting school September 2012 has now been completed. If you wish to apply for a Reception place at this stage please refer to the process for in-year applications.

Please be aware:

  • Attendance at a particular nursery/nursery class or foundation class gives no guarantee that the child will gain a place at the school where the nursery/nursery class/foundation class is located. Parents/carers must apply separately for their child to go to any first/primary school.
  • It is the parent's/carer's duty to ensure that they have obtained all the necessary information and the correct form on which to apply for a first/primary school place
