Applications for a Reception Place - Sept 2019
18th September 2018
Application for a Reception Place in September 2019
If your child was born between 1st September 2014 and the 31st August 2015 you will need to apply for a Reception place by midnight on 15th January 2019. Even though your child attends Henbury Court Nursery you still need to apply for a Reception place. There is a flyer attached to this email with further information or you can visit the below link to find out more.
The council's preferred method of application is on-line which is quick and easy to do and means that applications don't go missing in the post. If you do not have access to the internet at home, free on-line facilities are available at all public libraries in Bristol. In addition parents/carers can use the internet at the Citizen Service Point located in Central Bristol. If you are unable to apply on-line, paper application forms are available from School Admissions upon request or can be downloaded from their website.
The deadline for applications for a Reception place for Sept 2019 is Midnight on 15th January 2019 and this is when the on-line system will close. Paper applications postmarked after this date and time will be treated as late applications and a school place will NOT be allocated in the first round of offers.
Children living outside the Bristol LA area
If your child lives outside the Bristol City Council area you must apply on your Home Local Authority common application form (i.e. where you pay Council Tax).
Children with an Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCP)
If your child has an EHCP there is a separate procedure. The SEN team will send a unique application form. Parents/carers should NOT apply on-line. The SEN Team will need to check that the school understands and can meet the child’s needs as set out in the Plan, before a place can be offered. Please speak to Mr Harrison if you would like further information on this.
National offer day
Local Authorities will notify you of the outcome of your application on 16th April 2019. This will either be by email or by letter depending on how you applied.
