Other Information
If you have more than one child applying for a school place you must make a separate application for each of them.

The local authority has a duty to provide a place for a child if they are out of school but it does not have to be at one of your preferred schools.

If your child has a statement of special educational needs you will need to liaise with your child's case officer if you wish them to change school.
