If your child was born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015, they will be eligible to start school in the school year beginning September 2018.

 

The Year R application round will open on the 1st November 2018 and close on 15th January 2019.

 

From 1st November 2018, you can apply:

 

  • online at www.hants.gov.uk/admissions where you will also find information about schools in Hampshire; OR
  • using a paper application form available from any Hampshire infant or primary school

 

Schools make individual arrangements for open events in the autumn term.  You are encouraged to make use of these opportunities to gather information before making an application.


The national notification date for on-time applicants is 16 April 2019

 

  • If you applied online, you will receive an email on the morning of the notification date. You can also log in to the online system to view the outcome
  • If you applied using a paper form, you will be sent a letter on the notification date by second class post. Please allow 3 working days for receipt

 

Both the notification emails and letters will ask parents to provide to the school evidence of address and their child's date of birth between Monday, 22nd April and Tuesday, 30th April 2019.

 

Changing your application

 

Before the deadline (15th January 2019)

 

Parents who have applied online can log back into the online system and change their application.  Parents who have applied on a paper application will need to complete a fresh application or apply online if they wish to make changes.  A new application will supersede the previous one.

 

After the deadline and until Friday, 15th February 2019

 

Parents who submitted an on-time application can only change their applications if there has been a significant change in their circumstances.  Where this is a house move, evidence will need to be submitted to the Admissions team by Friday, 15th February 2019.  The Hampshire Admissions website outlines what address evidence is required, depending on the type of move.  Please forward any such changes to the Admissions Team before February half term.  Evidence received after 15th February will not be considered until 17th April, after the national notification date (16th April 2019)

 

You should notify the Admissions Team of any change of circumstances you become aware of which might affect an application.  This includes changes of address after 15th February 2019 so that they can ensure any correspondence goes to the right address.

 

Late Applications

 

Parents seeking to apply after 15th January 2019 can apply online.  Parents who do not wish to apply online can request a Late YEAR R APPLICATION from a local school after the application deadline. This completed form must be forwarded to the Admissions Team for processing.
