Starting Primary School
If you have applied for a Reception place for a child starting in September 2013 you will begin to receive your offer from 16 April.
If you have received your offer you must confirm your school place. To confirm the place you must contact the relevant school directly; the Council’s Admissions Team are unable to register your confirmation. Further information on appealing decisions is available below.
If you applied online you will receive your letter by email. It can take up to 24 hours for all the emails to be sent.
If you applied using a paper application form you will receive confirmation of your offer by letter through the post. Please allow up to seven days (from 16 April) for these to arrive.
Please be patient while you wait for your letter, there is no need to contact us to find out which school you have been allocated. If you do not receive your offer letter within the timeframes outlined above please contact the Council's Admissions Team using the 'Contact us' form below.
