School Start

 Admissions to all schools in England are co-ordinated by the Local Authorities.  Parents will need to complete one application for their Local Authority, regardless of the location of the schools to which they want to apply.  Based on information available from Shropshire Council (our Local Authority), if your child is due to start full-time primary education in September 2019, all school places need to be applied for by the 15th January 2019.  This will apply to children whose birthdays fall between 1st September and 31st December 2014 and the 1st January to 31st August 2015.  For further details please contact the Schools Admissions Team at Shropshire Council on 0345-6789008 or via e-mail at school-admissions@shropshire.gov.uk.
