Council tax, business rates and benefits systems

We are carrying out maintenance to our council tax, benefits and business rates systems this evening. These will be temporarily unavailable. Thank you for your patience.

Primary school admissions

Anyone who pays their council tax to us can use our application system to apply for a place for their child at a primary school in the city. If you pay your council tax to a different council, please use their application system.

Apply for a primary school place

If you are applying for your child to change school part way through the year, because you have moved or want your child to move to a different school, talk to your child's current school and the school you would like them to move to.

You must apply directly to the school you want your child to move to. If they do not have a place for your child, you can approach another school. We will send you a letter confirming the refusal and explaining how you can appeal the decision.
