Apply for a Reception Year Place at Infant or Primary School or a Year 3 Place

Applying for schools

If your child lives in Nottingham City and was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016, you need to apply for an infant/primary school place for September 2020.

Children who were born between 01 September 2012 and 31 August 2013 and are attending an infant school in year 2 will transfer to a junior school in September 2020. 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?

You will be able to make an application from 15 November 2019

The closing date for applications is Wednesday, 15 January 2020.  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.
