09-01-2019 Nursery - Applying for a Reception Place

9th January 2019



Dear Parent/Carer,


You must apply for a school place if your child was born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015. You must make an application for a full-time school place even if your child is already attending a nursery class in an infant or primary school, a pre-school or a children’s centre next to a school site. This is because a place in a nursery class, pre-school or children’s centre does not guarantee your child a full-time place at that school.


It is important that we receive your application by Tuesday 15th January. You should apply online and submit your application by this date. If for any reason you are unable to apply online, you should complete a paper application (CAF1) and send this to us so that we receive it by the closing date. If you do not apply by the closing date your application may not be dealt with until after places have been offered to those who applied on time. This means that all available places at your preferred school(s) may have been filled and it could be some time before you know the outcome of your application. You cannot apply online after the closing date


All of the information about applying for a school place can be found online, including Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), at Or you can contact the Admissions Team: By phone: 0345 600 0981 (local rate) By email: By post: The Admissions Team, Endeavour House, 8 Russell Road, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP1 2BX
