If your child’s date of birth is between 1st September 2012 and 31st August 2013, they are eligible to start Reception in September 2017.  The Admissions process for children due to start primary school (reception) for September 2017 will commence on 4th November 2016.

The timetable for the admission round is detailed below:

  • Date application packs available: 4th November 2016
  • Closing date for applications: 13th January 2017 at 12 midday
  • Offer date: 17th April 2017

Please ensure that you complete and return your application prior to the published closing date, as failure to do so will result in your application being determined as late which will reduce the chances of you obtaining a place at your preferred school.

How do I apply?

Applications must be completed by the person holding parental responsibility for the child concerned.

Monmouthshire County Council has an online admission application system, which is available for you to use when making your child’s application. The system enables you to view and amend your child’s application up until the closing date of 13th January 2017 at 12 midday.

When making your application online, you will be asked for your Child’s Unique Identifier (UID). This is provided in your application letter that you should have received by post. Please keep this Unique Identifier safe and enter onto the online application system when prompted. The Unique Identifier will need to be entered exactly as it appears on this letter. If you do not have a UID, you can make your application by selecting the “No UID” option.

As an alternative to the online application system, you can complete a paper application form. Please contact us on the telephone number or email address at the bottom of the page to requst this. You are not required to complete both an online application as well as a paper application form.
