Applying for a Place in Reception

Children in Worcestershire can start school (Reception) in the September after their fourth birthday. Worcestershire Council's School Admissions Service publishes information on their website, informing parent/carers on how to start their child at school. However, the responsibility for applying online for a child to start reception class, remains solely with parent/carers.

When to apply

Parents can apply for a place in the Autumn of the year before their child turns 4 years of age. It is important that you apply for a place as soon as possible. Attendance at our nursery class does not give a child automatic priority for a place.

Changing schools in the middle of the year

Mid-year applications are when you apply to transfer your child from one primary school to another primary school or from one secondary school to another secondary school during the school year.

Please visit School Admissions | Worcestershire County Council for further information on making an application.
