Starting school in 2017 – Important dates



Children who were born between 01/09/2012 – 31/08/2013 are due to start school (into Reception class) from September 2017. 


The application deadline is Sunday 15 January 2017. As the deadline falls on a Sunday if parents need to speak to the School Admissions Team they should do so by 4.30pm on Friday 13 January 2017.


All applications received from 16 January 2017 will be classed as late and not processed until the late allocation round, which will take place after the national offer day for on time applications. Submitting a late application significantly reduces a child’s chance of an offer of a place at one of their preferred schools.


Admissions details for 2017/18

Please read our current admissions policy below.

Admission appeals

If parents wish to appeal against an admissions decision, they can do so by applying to the local authority.
An independent appeal panel then meets to consider all appeals made by parents.
An appeal panel’s decision is binding for all parties involved.

Evertots Pre-School Attendance

Even if your child attends Evertots Pre-School, parents must still make a Starting School 2017 application to the School Admissions Team at Central Bedfordshire as there is no automatic transfer to Reception Year.
