In Year Admissions

In-year admissions are those that take place other than the normal time of entry to the school.


  • An in-year admission could be a move between Northumberland schools, or a move to a Northumberland school from a school in a different county or country.
  • You can submit an application for a school place up to 30 school days before the intended start date. When Northumberland County Council have received a valid application, along with the appropriate documentary evidence, we aim to process it within 15 school days.
  • From 1 May you can apply for the new school year, and from 28 June all applications will only be processed for the new school year (September).
  • You will get your offer of a place before the end of the academic year if you submit your application from 1 May to 28 June. 
  • Applications made after 28 June cannot be guaranteed an offer of a place for the start of the new school year due to school summer holiday break. Northumberland County Council aim to process your application within 15 school days.

When is a child required to start school?

The School Admissions Code requires school admission authorities to provide for the admission of all
children in the September following their fourth birthday. However, a child is not required to start school until they have reached compulsory school age following their fifth birthday.  For summer born children this is almost a full school year after the point at which they could first be admitted.

What flexibility is there for parents who don’t feel their child is ready to start school in the
September following their fourth birthday?

Some parents may feel their child is not ready to start school in the September following their fourth birthday. You can decide that your child attends part-time until he/she reaches compulsory school age, or that the date your child is admitted to school is deferred until later in the same academic year. Your child must, however, start school full time in the term after its fifth birthday.
