Parents reminded of primary school application deadline
08 January 2021
There is still time for parents in Norfolk to register their children for primary school in September 2021. The closing date for registering any child born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017 is 15 January. Children must be offered a full-time place by the new school year.
Applications can be made online but paper applications are also accepted and can be downloaded from the Norfolk County Council website. Parents need to make an application for a reception class place, even if their child attends a nursery class at the same school. A child’s attendance at a nursery attached to a school does not normally give them priority for a place at that school.
If parents apply online, decisions will be available during the day on 16 April on the school admissions website. If you complete a paper application form, a letter will be sent out on 16 April by second class post, outlining the decision.
The round for admission to Year 3 at junior schools in September 2021 also closes on 15 January. The transfer is for children in their final year at an infant school. Applications can be made online and a decision will be made by 16 April.
The deadline for any appeals on these decisions is 14 May 2021.
