Apply for a school place

National Offer Day for Primary and Junior Schools is the 16 April 2018

If you have submitted a paper application for a primary school or a junior school place before the national deadline of 15 January 2018, the outcome of your application will be posted out to you second class on 16 April 2018. This is the date that the letter will be posted and not the date that you will receive it. No decisions on applications will be conveyed over the telephone.

To accept or decline your place, please complete the acceptance/decline slip that is attached to the letter and return it no later than 2 May 2018.


Details on how to appeal for any school which your child has been refused a place at, as well as details on how to add your child's name to the waiting list, will be contained within the outcome letter. Find out more about appeals.


Only one offer of a school place for each child can be held at any one time. This means that if you submit a new application for your child, your new preferences will automatically supersede any preferences named on your earlier application. If any of your new preferences are agreed, the place previously offered will automatically be withdrawn.
