Time to get your school applications in
We are urging families applying for their child’s school place to make sure they fill in their application forms.
For secondary school applications families must submit their forms by 30 November. For families applying for primary school places in reception or to start junior school the closing date is 15 January 2021.
Parents will find out the results of their secondary school application on March 1 2021 and the results of primary school applications on April 16 2021.With a tight squeeze on places due to a rising population, it is more important than ever that parents and carers complete and submit their forms on time.
Parents should fill in all three preferences in order to keep their options open. Parents are entitled to express up to three preferences but some parents choose not to. Putting down three preferences does not dilute the chance of parents getting their preferred option, but does provide alternatives should this school be over-subscribed.
Families are also encouraged to name their catchment school as one of their preferences as places cannot be reserved for catchment pupils where a preference for this school has not been expressed.
Councillor Abtisam Mohamed, Sheffield City Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Skills said: “We all want the best for our children and a huge priority for us is to keep on raising attainment and achievement rates across the city. Getting children into their preferred school and providing outstanding local schools are key to this.
“I would encourage all parents and carers to fill in their application form for a school place as soon as possible and most importantly fill in all preferences. If families need help with the form they should contact 0114 273 5790.”
Apply online for primary schools. For secondary schools please contact the Admissions Team for an application form at firstname.lastname@example.org or 273 5790.
