Starting School (Primary) Admissions for 2013
For children born between 1st September 2008 and 31st August 2009.
If your child was born between 1st September 2008 and 31st August 2009, he or she will be due to start primary school in September 2013.
The application period is between 26th November 2012 and 15th January 2013. You can make your application on-line during this period.
Before completing your preference form, please read the "Education in Hartlepool - September 2013" booklet carefully. This booklet will be available on-line week commencing 26th November 2012. The booklet gives information on the admissions process and lots of information which you may find useful.
During this week a letter inviting you to make an application will be issued to your child at their nursery school. If your child is absent, or does not attend a private or mainstream nursery in Hartlepool, the letter will be posted to your home address.
Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions you will make for your child. You may wish to obtain as much information as you can about them. This will give you a better idea of which schools might suit your child best. For example, you might like to:
- Visit the primary schools - by making appointments to visit the schools that you are interested in.
- Read the schools' most recent Ofsted reports.
- Read the schools' prospectuses.
If you require any further information, please contact the Admissions Team on 01429 523765 or e-mail: AdmissionsTeam@hartlepool.gov.uk.
To secure your child's place at primary school, you must submit your application by 15th January 2013. If your application is received after this deadline, we will treat it as late and deal with it after the applications which were received on time.
