Catchment areas and placing requests

School Placing Request

If you are applying for more than one child please complete a separate form for each child.

For each child, you may only apply for one school at any one time.

If you submit more than one placing request application, the Education Department will only consider your first application.

A child's parent/carer is responsible for submitting a placing request to remain for a child in the event that they no longer reside within the delineated catchment area of the school and wish for the child to continue to attend the school.

If applying for a placing request/request to remain in the current session we will aim to notify you of the decision within 8 weeks of the application being submitted.

If applying for a placing request for session 2018/19 (starting Aug 2018) applications should be submitted between 1 December 2017 and 31 January 2018. We will aim to notify you of the decision by 30 April 2018. Applications received after 31 January 2018 will be treated as late.

You can find out how we use your information in our privacy statement on our website.
