If your child’s date of birth is between 1st September 2014 and 31st August 2015, they are eligible to start Reception in September 2019.  The Admissions process for children due to start primary school (reception) for September 2019 will commence on 5th November 2018.

The timetable for the admission round is detailed below:

  • Date application packs available: 5th November 2018
  • Closing date for applications: 14th January 2019 at 12 midday
  • Offer date: 16th April 2019

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 Application System, which is available for you to use when making your child’s application. Please note that this system is not available to use until 5th November 2018.

The system enables you to view and amend your child’s application up until the closing date of 14th January 2019 at 12 midday. Alternatively, you can contact us on the details below to request a paper application form.

Please take some time to read the Guidance Notes and Starting School Booklet 2019/20 before completing your application.
