All applications must be made through Leicestershire County Council. The Council now encourages all applications for school places to be made online. Details can be found on the County Council website at http://www.leics.gov.uk/admissions. The Admissions service telephone number is 0116 3056684.
Everyone must apply for a school place, as there is no automatic entry for any school.
Before you apply for your child’s school place for September 2024, please make sure the following applies to you:
Your child is eligible to start primary school in September 2024 eg born between 1 September 2019 and 31 August 2020 inclusive
Please read the criteria for allocation of places in our Admissions policy.
When there are more applications than there are places available, the governors will admit pupils according to the Admissions Policy criteria which are listed in order of priority. If there are fewer applications than places, then no application is refused. If there are too many requests, priority will be given to children in the appropriate age-range, whose parents applied on time, in the criteria order.
In the event of over subscription, places will be allocated within that particular criterion (as listed above) by a method of random selection (drawing lots) that will be observed by an independent witness.
The closing date for primary school applications is 15 January 2024.
The results for the September 2024 primary school applications received by 15th January 2024, will be made available on primary school offer day – 17 April 2024.
Hints and tips to help you with your application:
If you’re applying for more than one child to change school, you need to complete a separate application for each child.
Use your right to apply for three schools, but make sure that one choice is always your catchment school (available on the school’s website).
Read each school’s admissions policy before making an application; available on either the School policies page or the school’s website – check the Your Guide to education – list of schools for more information.
You should only include additional information if it is relevant to the school’s admission criteria.
If more than one parent has legal responsibility for your child, both parents must be in agreement over the school(s) requested.
Check that you press the ‘submit’ button and receive an acknowledgment email. If not, try again or contact School Admissions.
Make a note of your username and password.

Parents have the right to appeal if they do not accept the decision of the Governing Body of Queniborough C E Primary School not offering a place. To deal with appeals, special appeals panels will be set up and the Governors will have to abide by the committee’s decisions. The administration of such appeal panels will be carried out by the Diocesan Board of Education.
