Welcome to the Parent PortalThe Parent Portal allows parents or carers to apply for a school place and apply for free school meals via an online interface.
This online interface allows a user to create an account, add their children to the account, and either apply for a school place or free school meals. Once an application has been created and submitted it is available for the Local Authority to view.
To begin using the Parent Portal, create an account using the 'Create Account' link which can be found on the upper left side of this page. To return after creating an account, use the 'Login' link which can also be found on the upper left side of this page.
For School Admissions you can amend your application online until the official closing date for applications. Applications will be processed in line with our admissions guide for parents and the information provided on our website. The application process for starting secondary, primary and junior school in September 2019 has now closed for the allocation of offers on the relevant National Offer Day – Secondary – 1st March, Primary/Junior – 16th April.
The application process will re-open again on 2nd March for late secondary intake applications and 17th April for late primary and junior intake applications. If you have previously applied and been made an offer, but would like to make a revised application, you must use a different form which will be explained in your offer letter.
Offers:You will receive an e-mail on the relevant National Offer Day containing a link to your offer letter. This will tell you which school has been offered, as well as other information about appeals, applying for school transport and accepting the place.Alternatively you can log back into your account to see which school has been offered, although this will show you very limited information.
