Apply for a primary school place

10. When you'll find out

School places are announced for primary schools on 16 April. If this date falls on a weekend, confirmations are sent the next working day.

If you applied online, we will email primary school offers in batches on the morning of 16 April 2020 and then publish the offers online.

If you applied late you may receive your offer after the official offer date.

If you submitted a paper application form you'll receive your offer by second class post, which will arrive after the official offer date.

We can't confirm results with you over the phone due to data protection.

Due to the number of applications we receive, we can't provide updates on your application between the closing date and your official offer. Don't worry though, if there is a problem with your application we will contact you.

What happens next

You don't need to confirm the place with us. However, the school or academy may contact you to confirm the place, please respond if they contact you direct.

If the offer is not one of your preferred schools or academies this is because other applicants had higher priority within the determined admission arrangements.

Help with school costs

Once you know which school your child will go to, you can check whether they will be eligible for free school meals or free travel to school.
