Deadline Looming To Apply For Secondary School Places

by Amber Valley Info on Wednesday 11 October 2017



Parents have just under three weeks left to apply for their child’s secondary school place for September 2018.


Parents of year six primary school children who were born between 1 September 2006 and 31 August 2007 must apply by midnight on Tuesday 31 October 2017.


Derbyshire County Council Cabinet Member for Young People Councillor Alex Dale said: “The deadline to apply for next year’s secondary places is fast approaching so we’re urging parents to get their applications in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.


“If you don’t apply, you are less likely to get the place you want for your child. It’s really quick and easy to do it online and we’re here to support you throughout the application process.”


Applying online is the easiest method and can be done in the school admissions section of the county council’s website at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/admissions

Online applications also allow parents to make changes to their application at any point up to the closing date. Anyone who applies online will receive an email to confirm their application has been received and another email on National Offer Day – 1 March 2018 – stating the outcome of their application.


Parents who do not have access to the internet can telephone Call Derbyshire on 01629 533190 between 8am and 8pm on weekdays and 9.30am and 4pm on Saturdays.


When completing the application form parents will be asked to list, in order of preference, the three schools they would most like their child to go to. They will be advised to include their normal area school as one of the preferences.


Parents can still choose to complete a paper form, which they can get by emailing admissions.transport@derbyshire.gov.uk or ringing 01629 537499. This must be returned to the admissions and transport team at the address shown on the form by the closing date.


Although parents have a legal right to express preferences they have no automatic right to a place at any particular school.


Applications submitted to the council after the deadline will not be considered until places have been allocated to those children whose parents did return their form on time.


Parents who fail to meet the deadline may find that the school they want their child to go to is full.


Any parents who are a refused a place for their child have a right of appeal to an independent panel.
