For all children born from 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 parents/carers will need to apply for a reception class place in an infant or primary school for September 2022 entry.
National closing date for on time reception applications - Saturday 15 January 2022
National offer date for on time reception applications – Tuesday 19 April 2022
All Reception 2022 applications must be made through the family’s home Local Authority. Every family must apply to their home borough. This means if a family live in Newham they must apply through Newham even if their child attends a Nursery school outside of Newham, or they are only interested in reception classes in another borough.
Remember, parents/carers must apply for a place, even if:
- They want their child to go to the local school
- Their child has an older brother or sister at the school
- They want their child to start reception in the school where they are attending nursery.
Applications received after national closing day will be known as late applications. These applications cannot be considered for places until all on time applicants have their places. For all popular schools all places are usually already offered to on time applicants before late applicants can be considered, so applying on time is really important.
Before submitting a reception application, we strongly recommend all families read the “We Are Going to School” guide and find out information about the school you are interested in.
