When a child moves to a new area it is important that they are found a school place as quickly as possible. All areas of the East Riding fall within a primary and secondary school’s catchment area and for most children, their catchment area school is their nearest and most suitable school. Most children in the East Riding attend their catchment area school. If you want to apply for a school place you must apply to the School Admissions Team using the In-year Admissions Application Form. You may find it beneficial to download the Adobe Reader app to your device (rather than a generic pdf reader), if you don't already have it, as this will help to you complete the interactive pdf form.

If the school has places available in the appropriate year group, you will be given a place for your child. If the school is full and cannot admit your child, the School Admissions Team will tell you about alternative schools, your right to appeal and, if you are resident in the East Riding of Yorkshire, they will offer you a place at the nearest East Riding school with a place available.
