Primary school admissions

In-year transfers/new arrivals

We set the rules for admission for community and voluntary controlled schools and the governors of voluntary aided schools and academies set the rules for their schools. Our booklet 'Primary Education in Coventry' gives you information about applying for a school place and gives details about schools that are available in the city.

Further information about each school can be found in its prospectus.

If you are currently living in the UK and would like to apply for a place at a Coventry school, please complete our In Year Application form online.

If you are currently living overseas, and are intending to move to Coventry, or have recently moved to Coventry from overseas, and require a primary school place, you will only be able to apply once you have arrived in the country and have a residential address. You will then need to contact Ethnicity Achievement Services on 024 7678 7752, who will arrange for one of their officers to visit your home address, and assist you in applying for a school place.

All Primary school places are allocated under a co-ordinated scheme.

Parents must apply using our primary in year application form. We ensure that all applications are looked at according to the School Admissions Code.

If you wish to apply for in-year admission at Christ the King R.C. Primary School, Our Lady of the Assumption R.C. Primary School, St Mary and St Benedict R.C. Primary School or Sacred Heart R.C. Primary School, you may contact the school directly for admission.

All applications are processed in a rolling programme, which means that parents will usually wait 7 to 13 working days for a decision to be made. Around school holidays when schools will be closed and unable to view applications, this period can be longer. Further details of this can be found below.
