Our tips for making an application

  • Visit the Primary School to meet staff,  find out about the school ethos and what they can offer your child. 
  • Remember to check if the Open day session is for parents only, or if you can take your child along.
  • Parent information sessions are usually to help with application process and to answer questions about the school.
  • Make sure you read the admissions criteria and fill in the form with that in mind. Year 1 admission criteria is at the bottom of the page. Just click to download.
  • If your child is successful in gaining a place, they will have an opportunity to come for an induction play session, meet their new teacher and have a look around their new class. 
  • We advise that you list at least 3 Primary schools on your ONLINE application.
  • When your application form is complete you simply press send/complete online.
  • Don\'t forget to return any verification documents including the school's pre-enrolment form and Birth Certificate to the school you have listed as first preference. The school office will give you a receipt. This has to be done by 7th February 2020 at 12 noon.
  • Don\'t be late with your application form! If the Primary school is popular it will affect how the criteria is applied to your application.
  • Please let us know if you have any questions - we are here to help!
