Catchment areas and placing requests

School Placing Request

PLACING REQUEST APPLICATIONS FOR SESSION 2020/21 (COMMENCING AUGUST 2020) must be submitted between 1 December 2019 and 31 January 2020. We will aim to notify you of the decision by 30 April 2020. Applications submitted before 1 December 2019 for session 20/21 will not be accepted. Applications received after 31 January 2020 will be treated as late. 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.
