School Enrolment 2021-22

The 2021/2022 school year starts on Wednesday 18 August 2021. All children who are five years old on or before 18 August 2021 must start their primary education on that date.

Parents/carers of children who are five years old between 19 August 2021 and 28 February 2022 should be aware they may choose not to enrol their children until August 2022. Parents/carers should seek advice from staff at their nursery if they are considering deferred entry.

Parents/carers should register their child for primary school during the week 11 January to 15 January 2021.

Parents should register their child for primary school online by accessing: Primary and Secondary school enrolment.

When you register your child online you will need to provide your child’s birth certificate, your 2020/2021 Council Tax demand notice, and a recent utility bill as proof that you live permanently at your address.

If you are registering at a denominational school and your child has been baptised you should also provide their baptismal certificate. A photograph of your evidence taken from your smart phone is acceptable. If you are unable to register online, then you must contact your local catchment area primary school by telephone to discuss how you can register your child.

Should parents/carers wish their child to attend a primary school other than their local catchment area school, they must submit a placing request and should not register their child at the local catchment school.
