How to Apply for an In Year Primary School Place

If your child is already at primary school and wishes to move to a different school, you will need to make an in-year application by contacting the County Council.

The County Council then inform us that you have made an application and then we will contact you directly as we deal with our own admissions and waiting list. If we have no current spaces we will offer you the option of being placed on the waiting list. In order to be put on our waiting list, we need to see the birth certificate and a document such as utility bill as proof of address along with a completed in year application form. This form can be found attached to this page or pop in to the school office to collect one. 

The waiting lists are renewed at the start of each Seasonal term. If you wish your child to remain on the list you must contact the school within 10 school days of the start of each term in September, January and April. If no contact is received then your child’s name will be removed from the waiting list. 

If you have any questions surrounding any of our admissions procedures, please do not hesitate to telephone the office and we will do our best to help you. 01933 225888
