Starting school or moving up to Junior school

10. National offer day

This section gives you the information you will need when you receive your child’s primary school offer on 18  April 2017.

Make sure you read it carefully as it will explain why we have made the offer we have and what you will need to do next. It also tells you about the timeline for accepting the place we have offered and the waiting list requests. Even if you have an older child who is already at primary school, there are things that are likely to be different so it is important that you understand what happens after you have received your child’s offer. This section also has information about how we manage allocation rounds after 18 April.

National Offer Day for all Local Authorities (LAs) for children moving up to primary school in September 2017 is 18 April 2017. Each LA will let its residents know which school has been offered for their child.

Each LA will have different deadlines and things for you to do. If you don’t live in Buckinghamshire, make sure you understand what your home LA needs you to do. You should also contact them if your child does not have a school place for September.]
