If your child’s date of birth is between 1st September 2013 and 31st August 2014, they are eligible to start Reception in September 2018.  The Admissions process for children due to start primary school (reception) for September 2018 will commence on 1st November 2017.

The timetable for the admission round is detailed below:

  • Date application packs available: 1st November 2017
  • Closing date for applications: 12th January 2018 at 12 midday
  • Offer date: 16th April 2018

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 12th January 2018 at 12 midday. However now that the closing date has passed the on-line system has closed so you will need to contact the Access Unit using the details below for a paper form.
