Admissions - how to apply for your child to attend Chaucer Junior School

Derbyshire County Council - the LA - co-ordinates the admissions to all Derbyshire Primary, Infant and Junior Schools. Essentially the Authority acts as a clearing house for all admissions and enables parents/carers to express a preference for one, two or three schools and to place these preferences in rank order.

Parents/carers must make their application via Derbyshire County Council.

Children moving into our designated catchment area are admitted to their relevant age group in our school. If we are oversubscribed then parents/carers will need to complete an application form and go to appeal whether they are in the catchment area or not.
You can apply through the Derbyshire County Council website. Applications for starting Year 3 in September 2017 can be made from 14th November 2016 and the deadline for applications is midnight on 15th January 2017. The National Offer Day is on 18th April 2017.
