Before you apply, you should research the local primary schools. This will help you decide which schools to put down as your preferences. You can choose up to six preferences.

To find out more about a school, you could:

  • Go to a school open day
  • Visit school websites
  • Ask other parents what they think of the school
  • Look at the latest Ofsted reports and school performance tables

Schools have cut-off distances which can change every year based on demand. Be realistic when choosing your preferences and always read the school’s admission arrangements.
