If your child is born between 1-9-2014 and 31-8-2015 please do not complete an In Year application. You should complete a Routine Primary application which can be found on the Primary and Junior School admissions page.

If you are moving out of Reading or want to change your child's school to one outside Reading, you should apply to that local authority and let your child's current school know.

Although you can list four preferred schools in your application, your child may not be offered a place at any of them if the schools are already full. We will offer an alternative school to all residents of the borough who are unplaced.

If you want to move your child to a different school because of a problem with their current school you should try to resolve the issue with the school first. 

If your child is attending a local school and you have not moved home, you will normally be offered a school place from the start of the next half term.

Pupil Premium

You may receive priority for some schools if your child's current school receives pupil premium for them. More information about pupil premium

Additional forms

Some schools ask you to fill in a supplementary form as well in order to assess where you rank in accordance with their oversubscription criteria. You do not have to complete this, but it may affect your place on their waiting list.

Ranking considering Pupil Premium 

You will need to get your child's current school to confirm they are eligible. Please contact the school if you are not sure whether they get this funding for your child.
