From 12 September 2016 up to 15 January 2017 you can make your online transfer application for a Junior place.
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.
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.
Most children who are already in school have a Unique Identification Number (UID). Providing you live in Bath & North East Somerset and your child currently attends a maintained Infant school in Bath & North East Somerset, you will receive a letter in September 2016. The letter contains your child's UID and information about the transfer process from their current school. The UID number can then be used to make an application on line as this makes the application process easier for you. Please be aware that for address purposes, 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.
The primary information booklet for parents can also be viewed from the links on this page. If you prefer, and if you are a resident of Bath & North East Somerset, you can make your application by completing the Infant to Junior application form which you can return by post or fax. The Infant to Junior transfer form can be downloaded and printed from the link on this page, this will be available from 12 September 2016. Alternatively you can request a copy of the form and booklet from your child's current school. You can also phone 01225 394312 and ask for a copy to be sent out to you.
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 return your completed application form by 15 January 2017 for your child to be considered for a Junior school place.
