The school year starts in August and children enrol in the January before they start.

You need to register at your child's catchment school even if you want to request a place at another school.
When you enrol you'll have to provide proof of the child's:
- date of birth (birth certificate)
- home address (a recent council tax or utility bill)
Children born between 1 September and the last day of February can choose to start primary school later . Children born between the first day of March and the last day of August can also apply for deferred entry.
Contact your catchment school at the earliest opportunity to make the necessary arrangements if you miss the enrolment dates.
