Primary school admissions 2019 - national offer day is approaching...

The deadline for primary school admissions for the school year commencing in September 2018 expired on the 15th January 2018.

It is still possible to apply for a primary school place after this time but the application will be dealt with as a late application which means that all the applications which were submitted on time will be dealt with first. In practical terms, this means that it is unlikely that you will get your first preference if you are submitting a late application.

If there are valid reasons for the late application for example medical reasons or a change of address then this should be raised with the local authority who may then consider the application with higher priority.

For those who have submitted their applications by the deadline of 15th January, a determination should be provided on the 16th April 2018.  Decisions on late applications are likely to follow this date.
