This year, we are making the summer application process easier for schools and parents.
People with a current in-year application 2019-20 and children on continuing interest lists
Ordinarily, schools' continuing interest lists close at the end of each academic year. This means that to keep a child on a continued interest list, parents need to submit a new in-year application for 2020-21.
This year, in response to Covid-19, you will not need to submit a new application for the 2020/21 academic year. Your child will remain on the continuing interest list for your preference schools until July 2021.
We will process your current application as if you had submitted a new one. This will start from Monday 29 June 2020 and you will receive a confirmation letter (allow 2 weeks for these).
If you are happy with the school your child is currently attending, and do not wish to be considered for any new schools, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your child’s name and Child ID (if known).
For schools that are their own admitting authority, we still need agreement from the school before we can allocate a place, if your child qualifies for a vacancy. There could be a delay over the summer when schools are closed. We'll write to you if this applies to your application.
Please don't chase over the summer as schools will respond on their return in September 2020.
