Apply online for your school place
Applying online is quick, simple and safe. In fact, nearly 95% of parents and carers apply online for a lower/primary school place.
What you'll need to apply
Proof of your child's date of birth, such as a passport or short birth certificate. You'll be prompted to upload a copy of this during your application.
Apply by post
If you can't apply online, don't worry; you can also apply by post. Here's how:
- get an application form
You can download an application form, pick one up from any of our schools or we can post one to you (just call us on 0300 300 8037 and ask)
- complete the form and ensure you have proof of your child's date of birth, like a passport or short birth certificate (please don't send us original documents; copies are fine)
- send the completed form and copies of documents to:
Central Bedfordshire Council
We need to receive your application by the 15 January 2023 deadline.
Please don't make both an online and postal application. We'll only process the latest one (if it's sent before the deadline).
