Cambridgeshire County Council manages the school admissions process for children who live within, or are moving into Cambridgeshire for all maintained schools, including academies. Please see:

for details of how to apply for a school place.

The document 'First Steps Admission to Primary School' will give you information about:

  • How to decide which school/s you would like to apply for
  • How to make your application for a primary school place
  • How places are offered if there are more applications than places available
  • What will happen if it is not possible to offer your child a place at school

The document 'Starting Primary School' explains how to apply for a primary school place if your child lives in Cambridgeshire.

The Local Authority (LA) is responsible for co-ordinating the annual statutory consultation on admissions and for determining admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools.

Oversubscription Criteria for Community and Voluntary Controlled schools

If the school is full, pupils will be allocated, in the following order order for every space:

Children who have a Statement of Special Educational Need (SEN) / Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) that names the school will be admitted. NB. Those children with a statement of SEN / EHCP that does not name the school will be referred to the Statutory Assessment Team (SAT) to determine an appropriate place.

1. Children in Care, also known as Looked After Children (LAC) and children who were previously looked after but ceased to be so by reason of adoption, a residence order (now known as a child arrangement order) or special guardianship order;
2. Children living in the catchment area with a sibling at the school at the time of admission;
3. Children living in the catchment area;
4. Children living outside the catchment area who have a sibling at the school at the time of admission;
5. Children living outside the catchment area who have applied and been unable to gain a place at their Cambridgeshire catchment area school because of oversubscription;
6. Children who live outside the catchment area, but nearest the school as measured by a straight line.

In cases of equal merit in each set of criteria, priority will go to children living nearest the school as measured by a straight line.

UK Service Personnel/Crown Agents

Admission authorities must treat a family being posted to their area, whose posting abroad comes to an end, as meeting the residency criteria for the catchment area even if no house is currently owned in that area, once proof of the posting has been provided.

A school place will be allocated in advance if accompanied by an official government letter declaring a relocation date and intended address. The Admissions Team will accept a unit postal address or a quartering area address for applications from service personnel in the absence of a new postal address.
