Your child's journey through school and college should be rewarding and successful.

As parents and carers it's sometimes hard to know where to find all the information and resources you need.

Having lots of information in one place makes it easier to find out about school admissions, term dates, school closures, school meals, school transport, SEND Local Offer and Home Education

Parents of children starting reception and junior (Year 3) in September 2022 can apply online for school places from Monday 13 September 2021. The closing date will be Saturday 15 January 2022
