Finding the right school


With the closure of schools we envisage a serious delay to any in-year applications for school places. Please be assured that we will process your application as soon as we can and there is no need to contact us unless there’s a change in your circumstances.

Applications for children starting school or moving to a secondary or junior school in September will hopefully be unaffected.

You have the right to state preferences for three different schools for your child.

To help you decide which schools to apply for, you should find out as much as you can about individual schools such as how the places are allocated. You should also consider how your child will get to and from school as in most cases you will need to make the arrangements. See Part 1 of the Apply for a school booklet for useful guidance.

Whether your child attends a Local Authority maintained school, or an academy, the school can refer to ISEND services for support and advice if there are concerns about your child’s attendance, progress or well-being in the future. Please see our Local Offer and SENDIASS (Independent Advice Service) webpages for more information.
