Applications for first admissions (reception) and transfers from infant to junior/primary (year 3) for September 2022 are now open for children living in Nottinghamshire.
Children who are 5 years old between 1st September 2023 and 31st August 2024 or who are transferring from an infant school (year 2) to junior education (year 3) in September 2023, and require a school place for September 2023, need to apply before the closing date of 15th January 2023.
Please take care to apply on time as it will increase your chances of being offered one of your preferred schools. If you need help with your application, please call Nottinghamshire County Council on 0300 500 80 80.
All parents of known Nottinghamshire children eligible to apply should have been sent an application pack to their home address in November. Parents of children who live outside Nottinghamshire should contact the relevant local authority for information about applying.
We recommend you apply online at www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/admissions, where you’ll be able to view the outcome of your application on National Offer Day, 17th April 2023.
Please read the oversubscription criteria carefully for your preferred schools and use all four preferences. Applications for admission to year 3 in the normal admissions round will be considered only for those schools that normally admit children at year 3.
You can find lots of useful information in the “Admissions to schools: Guide for parents 2023-2024” and the “Admissions to schools: School information 2023-2024” leaflets. These can be read or downloaded at the Admissions website above.
