Starting primary school
Apply to start school in Year R (Reception) if your child is born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014.
Apply to transfer from infant to junior school (Year 3) if your child is born between the 1 September 2010 and 31 August 2011 and attends an infant school.
If your child is in Year 2 in a primary school which runs from Year R to Year 6, you don't need to apply for Year 3, unless you wish your child to transfer to a junior school.
If your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan or a statement of special educational needs you don’t need to apply through this admission process. Contact email@example.com instead.
