Starting primary school September 2016
If your child was born between 1 September 2011 and 31 August 2012 you will need to apply for a Reception school place from September 2015.
Full information and the primary school admissions 2016 brochure will be available online from 1 September 2015. From this date you will also be able to register and apply online via the eAdmissions website (website link will be available on this webpage). The application must be submitted before the closing date 15 January 2016.
You must apply directly to the council in which you permanently live, even if applying for schools in another borough.
Please note some schools (such as faith schools) require the completion of a supplementary information form (SIF). This is so that they can decide which pupils should have the highest priority when making offers. SIF are available directly from each school or their website and must be returned to the school by the deadline set by the school.
For children born between 1 September 2010 and 31 August 2011 starting primary school in September 2015.
If you have not yet applied for a primary school place for your child; please request a late paper application by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the School Placement and Admissions team on 01895 556644.
You will receive an offer letter with the outcome of your application within 4 weeks of the application being received.
Please be aware that you must accept your offer to secure the school place. If you have not yet accepted a school offer, please do so now:
Declining your offer
If you are declining the offer please ensure that you state the reason for the decline. If it because you are unhappy with the offer you have been given, you are strongly advised to accept the offer because it will not strengthen your child's waiting list position on your higher preference schools. If/when a vacancy arises at one of your higher preference schools and your child is at the top of the school's waiting list, you will be notified in writing of the offer immediately.
You have the right of appeal under the School Standards & Framework Act 1998 against the refusal of a place at any of the schools for which you have applied. If you wish to appeal for an Academy, Foundation, Free or Voluntary Aided (faith) school you must contact the school direct to obtain the appeal documentation. If you wish to make an appeal to a Community school please contact the Local Authority.
Alternatively if the school is outside Hillingdon, please contact the borough in which the school is situated within the next few days to obtain the procedure and the date by which an appeal must be received by them.
