Please note: If you have received a letter providing you with a UID to use during the application process, due to a recent software update the application system does not always prompt for this UID.  If that is the case, please continue with creating a new application and disregard the UID.

For help completing the application, understanding the process or other aspects of school admissions, or if your family's first language is not English, please contact the Family Information Service on 0800 587 8191 or at

Special Educational Needs

If your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC Plan) or a Statement of Special Educational Needs, you do not need to complete an application form as a school place will be identified through a separate process.  However, if a request has been made for an EHC needs assessment for your child, or your child is currently being assessed to decide whether an EHC Plan is necessary, you will need to make an application using the normal process.  Please contact the Statutory SEN Team for more information on 01872 324242 or via email:

How places will be allocated

It is important that you are aware of how applications will be ranked and places allocated at your preferred schools. Please go to the Admission Arrangements page for more details.
