If you have missed the admissions round deadline, you need to download and return an admissions application form (pdf) as soon as possible.  Or you can email admissions@norfolk.gov.uk and provide the following information:

When should a child transfer to junior school?

  • The transfer to junior school admission round is for children in their last year at an infant school (currently in Year 2). They will be age 7+ on 1 September 2019. These pupils are deemed 'due to transfer' which is a term used in admissions rules
  • Children who are already attending a primary school (that goes up to Year 6) on the opening day of the admission round, are not considered as due to transfer
  • If you apply for a junior school place and your child is already attending a primary school, your application will have the lowest priority even if you live in the catchment area of a junior school
