Primary and junior school admissions

Your child should start primary school or might start a junior school in September 2014, if he/she was born:

  • between 1 September 2009 and 31 August 2010 (primary)
  • between 1 September 2006 and 31 August 2007 (junior)

The admissions deadline for primary and junior school for September 2014 has now passed. If you still wish to apply for a place please contact school admissions using the contact details on the right hand side of this page.


If you applied online before the deadline date (15 January 2014) you can login to the London-wide eAdmissions website with your login details during the evening of Wednesday 16 April to find out the result of your application. Parents who have selected to receive a text alert or an email will receive this on 16 April after 5pm. We will send to all on-time applicants a letter by first class post advising the outcome of your application on 16 April and you will receive this on 17 or 19 April. All applicants must respond to the allocation date stated in the letter. If you have not received the news you wanted, take time to consider what you wish to do.

You are strongly advised to accept the place offered until you have secured a place at an alternative school.  If you decline the place it will be offered to another child and you will not be able to change your mind at a later date and keep the place – your only option will be to join the waiting list.

You will automatically stay on the waiting list for any higher preference school/s for which you applied and can add additional or replacement preferences to a maximum of six excluding the offer you have accepted. If we are unable to offer you a place at any of your preferred schools we will offer you a place at a school with a vacancy as far as practically possible. You can also ask to be put on the waiting list. If you decide to appeal, please visit the appeals page for an appeal form.

If you need any advice regarding your situation, you can visit customer services at the council's offices (Perceval House) or call the admissions service on (020) 8825 5511 (Monday to Friday from 9am to 12pm). 

False or misleading addresses

Ealing Council takes very seriously any attempt to obtain a school place by deception. If we find that a school place was obtained using a false or misleading address we will give serious consideration to withdrawing the offer, even after the child has started school.
