Reception Admission


Applications for children due to start primary and junior school in September 2017 close on Monday 16 January 2017.

You can apply for up to 3 schools, putting them in order of preference. It is in your best interest to list 3 schools. Naming only one school does not guarantee your child a place at that school or give your child priority for a place over another child, neither does naming a school more than once.

For advice call 03000 41 21 21 or email

Reception 2017 Appeals

If your child is due to start primary, infant or junior school in 2017 you can appeal between 18 April and 17 May 2017 to guarantee that your appeal will be heard by 19 July 2017.  For applications made in the normal admission round, appeals must be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals.  For late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 schools days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 schools days of the appeals being lodged.
