Admission to Reception classes 2020/21
If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016 and they have not yet started school, please be aware that they will reach compulsory school age from the first day of the school term following their 5th birthday. You can now make an in-year application to secure a place in the current academic year.
What you need to hand to apply:
- proof of your child’s date of birth: their birth certificate, passport or medical card
- proof of your address: a council tax bill or tenancy agreement
If you're living with a friend or relative and you're not named on the council tax account, you can use a copy of your child benefit statement or tax credits letter. We don’t accept utility bills, drivers' licences or bank statements as proof of address.
