30 April is the deadline to accept or decline your offer.

If you don't accept or decline, your place maybe offered to someone else. You will then be offered a place at your nearest school that still has places.

We advise you to accept your place so your child definitely has a school in September. This doesn't affect your chances of getting a school you prefer later, either on the continuing interest list for a particular school, or through a school admission appeal.

Please note :  Admission into our Nursery class does not guarantee a place in our Reception class.  There is a separate application procedure for admission into Reception which is as above.
