Primary School Admissions Now Open

Applications are now open to apply for primary school places.  This is available for children born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015.  Apllications will close at midnight on Tuesday 15 January 2019.

Applying for a school place online is recommended as the easier route.

Applying online is quicker in all regards, and allows parents to make changes to their application at any point up to the closing date. Anyone who applies online will receive an email to confirm that their application has been received.

Phone application can also be taken by phoning  01629 533190 between 8am and 8pm on weekdays and 9.30am to 4pm on Saturdays.

When completing the application form parents will be asked to list, in order of preference, the three schools they would most like their child to go to.

If a paper form is required, it can be obtained via the following contacts:
email: admissions.transport@derbyshire.gov.uk
tel: 01629 537499.

All paper applications must be recieved by the address shown on the form before the closing date.

Parents do not have a right to any particular place for their child, and although preferences can be stated, they not be observed.

If applications are recieved after the deadline, all other children will be allocated a place before the late applications are processed.

But if parents are a refused a place for their child they have the right to appeal, which will be assessed by an independent panel.
