Starting primary school in September 2018

Children born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014 are due to start primary school from September 2018.

Applying for a place

The deadline for applications was 15 January 2018. If you have not yet applied you can still submit a late application on the eAdmissions website

All the information you need on the application process can be found in our Primary admissions guide (PDF) and step-by-step instructions on how to apply online can be found here.


National Offer Day is Monday 16 April 2018

The result of your primary school application will be emailed to you available during the evening of 16 April 2018. Please wait until you have received the email before logging on to the eadmissions website for further details.  No offer letters will be sent by post.

The deadline to accept or decline your offer is Monday 30 April 2018

Accepting a place at school that is not the one you would most prefer will not affect your chances of being offered one of your top choice schools at a later date.

Waiting lists

A small number of parents may decide not to accept the primary school place that has been offered to their child and these places will then be offered to other children from the waiting lists in the second round of offers.

Your child’s name will automatically be placed on the waiting lists for any Barnet school which was a higher preference on your application form than the school you have been offered.

The second round of offers is scheduled to take place in the week ending 25 May 2018.

Appealing for a place at your preferred school

You have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel against the decision not to offer your child a place at a school of your preference.

Appeals will not be heard until all the available places at the school have been offered and accepted and as no places are reserved for successful appeals, this means that any appeals allowed will increase the intake above the admission limit.
