School Places – September 2019
If your child was born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015, he/she should start school in September 2019. You need to apply for a school place now.
If you live in Blackpool apply for a school or academy place online at:
OR you can complete a paper application form, available from
Blackpool School Admissions, tel 476637 or 476829
Before you complete your application, you should read Blackpool Council’s ‘Admission to Blackpool Primary Schools, Guide for Parents’ – available on www.blackpool.gov.uk/schooladmissions or you can request a copy from Blackpool School Admissions. Attendance at a Nursery is not taken into consideration. If your child attends a Nursery that is attached to a school, he/she will not automatically move into the Reception class at that school. If you pay your council tax to Wyre or Fylde, you need to apply online at www.lancashire.gov.uk, but you can still apply for a Blackpool school.
CLOSING DATE FOR PRIMARY APPLICATIONS

Do not leave it until the last minute! Applications that are received after 15th January 2019 are dealt with separately, so you reduce your chance of gaining a place at your preferred school if you miss this deadline.
