Reception School Places 2018

Reception is the first year of primary school. It comes after Nursery, but before Year 1.

If your child was born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014, they'll be able to start school in September 2018.

When to apply

Parents can apply for a place in the Autumn of the year before their child turns 4 years of age. It is important that you apply for a place as soon as possible:

  • Attendance at a nursery class does not give a child automatic priority for a place
  • Do not wait until your child is 5 years old, or your preferred school may already be full

You can list up to 3 preferred schools when you apply.

If you would like help to complete school applications please ask at Nursery.
