Apply for a primary school place
If your child was born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015, they are due to start primary school in September 2019. You must make an application for your child's primary school place.
If you submitted your application by 15 January 2019, your child's school place offer will be available from the national offer date of 16 April 2019.
If you haven't yet applied for a primary school place, you have until 2 May 2019 to apply in the second round.
National offer date - view your child's school place
If you applied online, please log into your Citizen Portal account to view your school place offer. School offer letters will also be sent to your child's home address, posted second class on 16 April 2019.
It is important that you accept the offer of your child's school place. If you do not, we reserve the right to withdraw that place in order to offer it to another child. You have until 30 April 2019 to accept the offer.
If you submitted your application online, you can accept the school place via your Citizen Portal account.
If you did not apply online or are accepting your place after the deadline of 30 April 2019, please contact the school offered directly to accept the place. Their contact details will be included in your offer letter.
Accepting a place at the school offered will not lessen your chance of being offered a place at your preferred school, either through the school's waiting list or through the appeals process.
