Accept a school place

If you have applied for a school place as part of the normal point of entry scheme (applying to start at a primary, junior, secondary or key stage 4 school for the first time in September 2019), all of the following sections, other than in-year admission, apply to you.

Once you've been offered a place at a school, you need to either accept or reject the offer, usually within two weeks. If you don't respond, the place may be allocated to someone else.

If you applied for your school place online, sign back into the Citizen Portal to give your response.

Infant, primary and junior allocations

You need to tell us if you accept your school place allocation from the first round notified on 16 April 2019 between 16 April 2019 and 7 May 2019.

Secondary and key stage 4 allocations

You need to tell us if you accept your school place allocation from the first round notified on 1 March 2019 between 1 March 2019 and 15 March 2019.

In-year admission

This applies to children who are already in a school and are transferring to another school, maybe because they've moved address.

If you've applied for your school place through us, we'll make an offer of a school place and you must email inyear.admissions@plymouth.gov.uk and respond to that offer and if appropriate, whether you wish your child to join a waiting list for a higher ranked school than the one offered.
