Reception Admissions

Applying for a Reception place for September 2018

The closing date for applications was 15 January 2018.


If your child was born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014 they are due to start in the Reception class at a primary school from September 2018.


You must apply for a Reception class for your child even if they attend a school nursery or have an older brother or sister at your preferred school. If your child currently attends a nursery attached to a school this does not give them any priority for a place in Reception at that school.


The eAdmissions website for online applications opens on 1 September and the closing date was 15 January 2018. The following link will take you directly to the application website:

Over Subscription Criteria

If no places are available a waiting list is held. Allocations will be made based on a space becoming available for the child at the top of the waiting lists. Waiting lists for Nursery are held within the school, whilst waiting lists for Reception or above are with the borough admissions.
