Application dates

The opening date for applications is 10 September 2021. The closing date will be 5pm on 15 January 2022.

To find out more about the admission arrangements for each Primary school in North Northamptonshire and for detailed information about the process for applying for a place at a Primary school, please read the ‘Applying for a Primary school place in North Northamptonshire – 2022-2023’

Primary school place offers

How will I find out which school my child has been allocated?

All parents who applied for their child's primary school place by the deadline of 15 January 2022 at 5pm will receive an offer of a school place for their child in one of two ways:

  • If the application was submitted online, the child's allocated school place will be sent via email on 19 April 2022 to the email address used to apply.
  • If the application was submitted using a paper form the child’s allocated school place will be sent via a letter posted on 19 April 2022.

From 19 April 2022 this page will contain information for parents about school place offers and what to do next.

I have submitted a late application, when will I find out which school my child has been allocated?

Late applications are applications received after 5pm on 15 January 2022 and these are dealt with in rounds. Each round has a cut off for applications to be included in it. The allocation process can take a number of weeks, depending on how many applications are received.

Emails will be sent to all late applicants who apply online. We will only inform parents of children on a waiting list if we are able to offer a place. Otherwise, their child's name will remain on the waiting list for the next round.

There is no need to contact us after completing a late application form, or on the process start date - we will contact you once an offer has been made.
