Primary School Admissions for 2020

The online application form is available for first admission to primary school in September 2020.

Applications can be made between 2 September 2019 until midnight on 15 January 2020 and should only be completed by Warrington residents.

If you live outside of the Warrington area (i.e. pay council tax to another Local Authority) you are able to state a preference for a Warrington school, but must apply using your  Local Authority’s online application form.  

If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016 they are due to start reception class in September 2020.

If your child currently attends a nursery setting you should receive a letter which includes information about the registration and application processes. If your child does not attend a nursery setting, we are unable to send you any correspondence but you are advised to read the information before applying.  

All applicants are advised to read the information booklet Primary Education – First Admission to Reception Class - Information for Parents 2020 - 21 before completing the application form.

Offers are communicated to all on time applicants via email, unless you have expressed a preference to be informed via post instead. If you do opt to be informed by post, letters will be sent out by second class post on 16 April 2020, so parents/carers should allow time for postage.

If you have opted to receive the offer information via email the information will be sent to the email address (which you provided on the online application form) from 10:00 am on 16 April 2020.
