Nottinghamshire County Council inform you that applications for first admission (reception) and transfer from infant to junior/primary (year 3) for September 2022 opens on Monday 8 November 2021 for children living in Nottinghamshire.

Children who are 5 years old between 1 September 2022 and 31 August 2023 or who are transferring from an infant school (year 2) to junior education (year 3) in September 2022, and require a school place for September 2022, need to apply before the closing date of 15 January 2022.

Please help us promote the importance of applying on time as it increases the chances of parents being offered one of their preferred schools, a poster is attached for you to display or share electronically with parents. This year, we have also provided parents with a leaflet giving key messages about the application process. A PDF version of this is also attached, which you may find useful to include in any newsletters or communications. This information has been sent to all Nottinghamshire infant, junior and primary schools.

All known Nottinghamshire children eligible to apply will be sent an application pack to their home address week commencing 8 November 2021. Children who live outside of Nottinghamshire should contact their homelocal authority for information about applying.

We recommend that parents apply online at, they will then be able to view the outcome of their application on National Offer Day 19 April 2022. Parents are encouraged to read the oversubscription criteria carefully for their preferred schools and use all 4 preferences. Applications for admission to year 3 in the normal admissions round, will be considered only for those schools that normally admit children at year 3.

Please encourage parents to visit our website where they can find a wide range of useful information regarding the admissions process in the Admissions to schools: Guide for parents 2022-2023 and the Admissions to schools: School information 2022-2023.
