Reception Children Starting School

Starting school

If your child was born between 1 September 2011 and 31 August 2012 they may start school full time in September 2016.

This move is not an automatic process and you will need to apply for a place at the schools you would like your child to go to.

The full admissions process is set out in the booklet ‘Starting school full-time in 2016’.

Important things to note

The closing date was 15 January 2016.

If you applied by 15 January 2016

Results will be posted from 7pm on 18 April 2016.
You must then reply by 3 May 2016 or your child will not have a school place

If you have not already applied for a school place

Please apply using the common application form (CAF) provided by the borough where you and your child live.
If you live in Barking and Dagenham download or pick up a copy of the Reception CAF at our Dagenhamone-stop shop.
