Please use Admissions Online to register and apply
From 12 September 2016 up to 15 January 2017 you can register and apply for a Reception place online via the admissions online website.
Click here to Access our Admissions Online website - Please remember that you need to live in Bath and North East Somerset to use this online facility unless you are living abroad. Visas may be requested in appropriate cases where the child is a Non-EAA resident.
If you are a resident of Bath and North East Somerset you can also apply by completing a Reception Application Form which you can return by post or email. The Reception Application Form can be downloaded and printed from the link on this page this will be available from 12 September 2016. Alternatively you can also telephone 01225 394312 if you would prefer a form and booklet to be sent out to you.
Please note that Norton Hill Primary will now not be opening in September 2017. If you have previously submitted an application for Norton Hill Primary school you may wish to amend your preferences, if not, the LA will disregard your preference for Norton Hill Primary school and give the other preferences that you have named a higher priority order.
Applications must be made to the Local Authority in which you live even if you are wanting to be considered for a place at a school situated within a different Local Authority area.
In order that your child can be considered for entry to school during the school year 2017/2018, you must submit your application by 15th January 2017. You may have received a transfer letter advising you of the application process if your child's details are held on our database. Please be aware that where we have had no recent updates to a child's record, we reserve the right to check other systems including Council Tax records to confirm the current address.
We produce a Primary Information Booklet for parents which can be viewed from the link on this page from 12 September 2016. The booklet contains essential information on how to make an application along with a number of useful contact points should you need further information. In deciding which schools you wish to give as your preferences, please read the admissions criteria for each school. This will tell you which category your application would be considered under if the school were to be oversubscribed.
One section of the booklet explains how places at all the schools within the Authority have been allocated over the past 3 years. This may help you to decide what chance you have of gaining a place should you apply.
Please remember that if you are making a paper application you must still return your completed application form by 15 January 2017 for your child to be considered for a Reception place.
PLEASE NOTE: WHICHEVER METHOD YOU USE TO APPLY FOR A RECEPTION PLACE IN SEPTEMBER 2017, THE CLOSING DATE AND TIME FOR RECEIPT OF APPLICATIONS IS MIDNIGHT ON 15 JANUARY 2017.
