You must provide your child’s permanent address on the application form (even if you are planning to move after the deadline). This address is used to determine your school catchment area and distance from home to school.
Where children spend part of their week with one parent and part with the other, only one address can be used. This must be the address at which they spend most of their time.
If the address on your application is not your child’s normal address, you must provide a Child Arrangements / Residence Order, for this address to be considered.
If you move house before the application deadline you must:
amend your online application or submit a new paper application form.
If you move house after the application deadline you must:
send evidence of your new address to the County Admissions Team by:
6 January 2017 (for Year 7 applicants), or
15 February 2017 (for Year R and Year 3 applicants).
Your new address will be considered for your application. You can change the schools named on your application if they are no longer appropriate. If you would prefer us to use the address previously provided, please let us know.
Address evidence received after 6 January 2017 (Year 7) or 15 February 2017 (Year R and Year 3) cannot be considered for your application. It will be used to communicate the outcome of the application only.
Places are withdrawn every year because parents give a false address on their application. This includes cases where parents buy or rent a property solely to use the address in the application without any intention of taking up permanent residence there.
The County Council will investigate all allegations of false addresses and may monitor residency details if use of a temporary address causes concern.
