Primary school admissions

The closing date to apply for your child to start Reception Class in September 2019 has now passed.

All applications submitted on or before the closing date of 15 January 2019 will be dealt with at the same time.

Any applications received after 15 January 2019 will be classed as late and will only be processed after those which were received on time, unless the child has changed address or has recently been taken into care. For more information take a look at the  Primary education – Information for parents 2019-20 booklet.

To submit a late application

You can download the primary school application form  or contact the School Admissions Team on 01925 446226 or schooladmissions@warrington.gov.uk to request a copy of the form.

Please note that only Warrington residents should complete the form, and please make sure you read the information booklet Primary education - Information for parents 2019-20 booklet beforehand.

Completed applications should be returned to:

School Admissions Team
2nd floor, New Town House
Buttermarket Street
Warrington

Or they can be scanned to schooladmissions@warrington.gov.uk

If any of your preferences are for faith schools then you must also complete the school's supplementary form as well as the council's application form. You can download the faith school's supplementary application form or contact the individual school for a copy. These supplementary forms must be returned to the school, not the council.

Offer information

The offer information will be sent to your home address on 16 April 2019. If you express a preference to receive the offer information via email this will also be sent to the email address provided by you at the time of application. Emails will be sent out from 10am on 16 April 2019.

In the unlikely event of the email notifying the offer of a school which is different to the offer information in the letter, the school place offered in the letter will always prevail.
