Admission to reception classes for September 2019 entry, opens on 28 September 2018 and closes on 15 January 2019.
The reception class admission round for September 2018 entry closed on 15 January 2018. Decisions were made available on 16 April 2018.
If we were unable to accommodate any of your preferences, an alternative school has been offered. You had to confirm to us in writing firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 11 May 2018 your acceptance of this offer. If a preference has been refused at any school, your child’s name will be kept on a waiting list for that school until the end of December 2018.
If a preference was refused, you had the right of appeal by Friday 11 May. Any intention of appeal lodged after Friday 11 May 2018 cannot be considered, unless there are exceptional reasons why the specified date was missed. Appeals will be heard during June and July 2018.
(The right of appeal for a place in an infant class with 30 pupils, is more limited than any other appeal. This is because infant classes are limited by law to 30 children with a single teacher. Information is included in the booklet A parents’ guide to admissions to schools in Norfolk (pdf).)
If your child has been refused admission to a school outside of Norfolk and you wish to appeal, you should contact the local authority where the school is located. You should check the closing date for appeals with the authority, as this can be different from Norfolk.
All pupils in reception in state funded schools are eligible for free school meals. If you receive certain benefits the school can also get additional funding. Read further information.
If you are considering applying to defer your child's admission to Reception class to the following school year, please read the guidance below:
