Primary school places

You must apply for a primary school place if:

  • your child is due to start primary or infant school (reception year)
  • your child is at infant school (year 2) and is due to start junior school (year 3)
  • your child is at primary school (year 2) and you want your child to move to junior school at the start of year 3

Check the date your child can start school

If your child is at infant school and you want to apply for a year 3 place at a primary school (rather than a junior school) you must apply for an in year admission.
