Primary school admissions

If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016, you must apply for them to start primary school in September 2020.  This is a very important decision and it is important that you read the South Gloucestershire Primary school admission guide before you apply.  Applications for primary school admission must be submitted no later than 15 January 2020.

South Gloucestershire Council provide impartial advice, support, guidance and information about choosing a primary school.  Remember there is no substitute for visiting the school(s) that you are considering.  We suggest that you visit potential schools before making your preferences, as there are many things to consider such as travel arrangements.  You can find your nearest primary schools on our schools directory.

Once you have read the primary school admission guide, you can either apply online or download and print the form to complete it by hand.

Return your application form to:

South Gloucestershire Council
Department for Children, Adults and Health
Admissions and Transport Team
PO Box 1955
BS37 0DE

It is important that you submit your application on time.  Applications received after the closing date of the 15 January 2020 will only be looked at after the national offer day, which is the 16 April 2020.
