Apply for an in year primary school place

Please make an in year primary school application if your child needs to transfer from the school they are currently attending, or you have moved, and your child does not have a school place. If you receive a school offer you must be able to admit your child within 20 school days, or the place may be withdrawn.

Before you apply

Check the year group table to identify the correct year group you need to apply for.

Check the latest primary school vacancies to see where we have available school places.

Read the admissions criteria for the school(s) you wish to apply for to understand how places are allocated.

Ealing faith schools (Christian, Catholic, Sikh) applications

If you are applying to a faith school, in addition to your application you must complete the school's Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and return the additional documentation to the school.
Go to the primary schools directory to access the SIF of the faith school you wish to apply for.
