Applying for schools
If your child lives in Nottingham City and was born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017, you need to apply for an infant/primary school place for September 2021.
Children who were born between 01 September 2013 and 31 August 2014 and are attending an infant school in year 2 will transfer to a junior school in September 2021. Children in year 2 at a primary school do not need to change school and will stay at that primary school until year 6 and this information does not apply.
How do I apply?
The closing date for applications is Friday 15 January 2021. If you apply after the deadline this may reduce your chances of getting a place at your preferred school, particularly if it is popular.
You can complete an online application using Nottingham City Council’s online form.
Basic details on the application process, along with things you should consider can be found in the summary leaflet below.
