If your child was born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019 they will be due to start Reception year in September 2023.
There are many factors to take into consideration when choosing the right school and we are more than happy to help you make the right choice.
Children Starting School September 2023
Children born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019 can start school in Reception Year in September 2023.
The application window for Reception 2023 opened on 12 September 2022. You can apply online at http://www.n-somerset.gov.uk/admissions (see guide for applying online) download an application form or contact the school office if you need assistance with obtaining an application form. All applications are processed by North Somerset Council School Admissions.
Applications can be returned to the council, in person, by post or electronically. The deadline for the submission of applications to North Somerset School Admissions is 11:59pm Sunday 15 January 2023.
Our admission arrangements have a supplementary information form (SIF) to be completed and submitted with your application for school (this includes online and paper applications). The SIF form should be completed and sent directly to the school before the 15 January 2023 deadline.
It's really important to apply by the relevant closing date or you may not be considered in the first round of applications. If you miss the deadline, you can still apply. Late applications will be processed later in the year but may be less likely to get your preferred school.
