Admissions to Reception Class (Starting School)
For children born between 1st September 2015 and 31st August 2016
If your child was born between 1st September 2015 and 31st August 2016, he or she will be due to start primary school in September 2020.
The application period is between 4th November 2019 and 15th January 2020. During w/c 4th November 2019 a letter inviting you to make an application will be issued to your child at their nursery school. If your child is absent, or does not attend a private or mainstream nursery in Hartlepool, the letter will be posted to your home address.
You can make your application on-line during this period*. Before you submit your application, please read the Education in Hartlepool Booklet - 2020 carefully. The booklet provides information on the admissions process, key dates and lots of information which you may find useful.
To secure your child's place at primary school, you must submit your application (along with any supporting documents such as a baptism certificate) by 15th January 2020. If your application is received after this deadline, we will treat it as late and deal with it after the applications which were received on time.
