The admission round for entry to reception classes in September 2021 is now open. The closing date for applications is 15 January 2021.
When does a child start school?
If your child was born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017, they are due to start school in reception class in the school year starting September 2021. Children must be offered a full-time place from September 2021.
Parents are entitled to defer their child’s admission or request that their child attend on a part-time basis. By law, children must start statutory education full-time no later than the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday.
You will need to make an application for a reception class place, even if your child currently attends a nursery class at the same school
Attendance at a nursery attached to a school, does not normally give you any priority for a place at that school
