Love to Learn, Together with the Lord

You must apply if your child has a 4th birthday between 1st September 2022 and 31st August 2023
The arrangements for the admission of pupils to primary schools in September 2024 will, as far as possible, conform to the following timetable.
1 September 2023 - Apply from this date
School places are not allocated on a first come, first served basis. All applications received up to the closing date are given equal priority, but if you miss the deadline, a late application may reduce your chance of getting your preference of school.
15 January 2024 - National closing date for primary applications (statutory).
During this period all applications are processed and all preferences are considered against the published admissions policy. Where there are more applications than places available, decisions are made as to which children should be offered the available places. We will liaise and exchange information with all other admission authorities including neighbouring local authorities. The allocation and offer of a primary school place is finalised.
16 April 2024 - Offers issued to parents
(The national offer date is 16 April, if this date falls on a weekend or a bank holiday, offers are sent the next working day.)
