Important Update: Applying to School 


If your child was born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019, then you have until 15 January 2023 to apply for their primary school place. If you miss this deadline, you are much less likely to get offered a place at a preferred school because you will be allocated a place after everyone who applied on time. 


Where to start? 

For a good introduction to the primary school application process, watch this handy video from Warwickshire County Council (WCC): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLderSYccvY&list=PL9f3C4Fbo5T8jC5mcb2uQ89KPBJvXGox7&index=5  

There’s a range of useful information on the WCC website to help you to decide on which schools to include on your application. This includes a list of all the Warwickshire schools - https://apps.warwickshire.gov.uk/findaschool - with links to their websites and admission policies as well as a map that shows you the priority areas for each school.  


For general guidance on choosing schools to include on your application, visit www.warwickshire.gov.uk/primaryplace.  You can learn a lot about each school from their individual websites, but it’s always a good idea to go and visit them in person too. That way you can meet the staff and get a better understanding of whether it would be the right place for your child.  


Meet the Admissions Team Online 

The school admissions team are also running to webinars for parents and carers of children who are due to start school next year. These are free to join and are a great opportunity to learn more about the process and what you can do to submit a successful application by the deadline. There’s two dates to choose from and everyone who books a place will receive a recording of the event. Book your place here:  

Ready to apply? 

Once you are ready to apply, the most important thing you can do is to make realistic choices of the schools you choose. Whilst you don’t have to use all your six possible preferences on your application form, WCC strongly recommend that you include at least three schools to maximise your chances of getting an offer for one of your preferences. Those families that only apply to one school are the most likely to be disappointed on National Offer Day (17 April) with an offer of a school place that they didn’t choose.  


Please visit www.warwickshire.gov.uk/primaryplace for more guidance on how to submit your application by the 15 January deadline.  


If you need more help… 

For the majority of families, applying to primary school is fairly straightforward. However, if you need additional help for any reason, you can request this by filling out a short online form at www.warwickshire.gov.uk/schoolplacehelp. Once you’ve done that, one of the WCC team will get in touch with you.
