If your child’s date of birth is between 1st September 2017 and 31st August 2018, they are eligible to start Reception in September 2022.  The Admissions process for children due to start primary school (reception) for September 2022 will commence on 3rd November 2021.

The timetable for the admission round is detailed below:

  • Date applications available: 3rd November 2021
  • Closing date for applications: 12th January 2022 at 12 midnight
  • Offer date: 18th April 2022

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 3rd November 2021.

The system enables you to view and amend your child’s application up until the closing date of 12th January 2022 at 12 midnight. 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 2022/23 before completing your application.
