When can my child start school? In Warwickshire children start Infant or Primary School the September after their fourth birthday. The law says all children must start school by the beginning of the term after their fifth birthday. If a child attends an Infant School, they will transfer to a Junior/Primary School in the September following their seventh birthday.

18th April 2017 - National Offer day Parents must apply for a school place through their Local Authority (the county where you live). Parents may apply for a place at any preferred school. Non-Warwickshire schools can be listed on the Warwickshire application form. If you live within a school’s priority area you have more chance of your child being offered a place at that school. Living within the priority area does not guarantee an offer of a place at that school as there may be more applicants living within the priority area than the number of places available. Warwickshire residents are encouraged to apply online, otherwise call the admissions office. The Headteacher can tell you about the admission arrangements and the opportunities to visit the school. Places are offered according to the admissions criteria. Late applications will be considered after all those received on-time. You must comply with the deadlines set by your Local (Home) Authority.
