Forms received after 31 October 2019 but before 31 January 2020
Forms received after Thursday 31 October 2019 but before Friday 31 January 2020 will be considered as late applications unless there's a valid reason for being late such as a change of address. If accepted, they'll be considered in the first allocation round on Monday 2 March 2020. If there's no valid reason for a late application, the application will be considered in the second allocation round.
Forms received on or after 31 January 2020
Forms received on or after Friday 31 January 2020 are treated as late applications.
The allocation process starts on Friday 31 January 2020 which means that an application received on or after this date will, in all probability be considered in the second allocation round as it will be too late to include the application in the first round.
Many schools will be filled in the first allocation round. If the school has already been filled, your child will be added to the waiting list for that school. If the school isn'ot filled, your child will be allocated a place in the second allocation round.
