Norfolk County Council say school registrations still available for September

The county council has emphasised there is still time for parents in West Norfolk to register their children for primary school in September.

The closing date for registering any child born between September 1, 2016 and August 31, 2017 is January 15. Children must be offered a full time place by the new school year.

Applications can be made online but paper applications are also accepted and can be downloaded from the Norfolk County Council website.

Parents need to make an application for a reception class place, even if their child attends a nursery class at the same school.

A child’s attendance at a nursery attached to a school does not normally give them priority for a place at that school.

If parents apply online, decisions will be available during the day on April 16 on the school admissions website.

If you complete a paper application form, a letter will be sent out on April 16 by second class post, outlining the decision.

The round for admission to Year 3 at junior schools in September 2021 also closes on January 15. The transfer is for children in their final year at an infant school. Applications can be made online and a decision will be made by April 16.

The deadline for any appeals on these decisions is May 14, 2021.
