Apply for a primary school place

You need to apply for a primary school place if:

  • You live in Buckinghamshire
  • Your child is due to start school or move up to Junior school in September 2018

The application portal for starting primary and junior school in September 2018 is now closed.

If you have missed the application deadline download an application form and return it to us as soon as possible using the admissions contact form.

Once you have made your application you will need to submit the following:

  • A scan or photo of your Council Tax bill for this 2017/18, or
  • A scan or photo of a utility bill dated within the last three months, showing usage

Submit your address evidence 

If you need to provide evidence of your circumstances if you are applying for a 'looked after child' or have exceptional medical or social reasons for attending a particular school please use the admissions contact form.

What you need to know:

  • you must apply for a school place in the county that you live in, even if you wish to apply to a school in another county. Find your local council
  • You can list up to six preferences. Putting just one school doesn’t give you a better chance of getting in
  • List the schools in the order you would like them, not the order you think you might be offered them
  • It is best to include your catchment school, even if you put it lower on your application than other schools
  • There is no guarantee of a place at your catchment school
  • Having a sibling at the school does not guarantee admission but make sure you include your other child’s details on your application
  • Putting the same school more than once will not give you any better chance of being offered it

Denham Village Infant School
