How Do I Apply For Primary School Place?

Posted on

To apply for a primary school place in the UK, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Check the application deadlines: The application process for primary school places usually opens in November or December, and the deadline for applications is typically in mid-January.

  2. Find your local authority's application form: You can usually find the application form on your local authority's website. Alternatively, you can contact them directly to request a form.

  3. Complete the application form: The application form will ask for information such as your child's name, date of birth, and your preferred schools. You will also need to provide supporting documents such as proof of address and your child's birth certificate.

  4. Submit the application form: You can submit the application form online or by post. Make sure you submit your application before the deadline.

  5. Wait for the outcome: You should receive a notification from your local authority in April, informing you of the school place your child has been allocated.

  6. Accept or appeal the school place: If you are happy with the school place offered, you will need to accept it by the deadline provided. If you are unhappy with the school place offered, you can appeal the decision.

  7. When you get the Primary School place then you can start preparing for the first day of primary school!

It's important to note that the application process can vary slightly depending on the local authority. Therefore, it's always best to check your local authority's website for specific instructions.
