Primary in-year applications - current school year

How to apply

All primary schools in Coventry, except All Souls Catholic Primary School and St Mary’s & St Benedict’s Catholic Primary School, are part of the Coventry co-ordinated admissions scheme. This however, does not include Independent fee-paying schools (please contact these schools direct) and Special Educational Needs Schools which are for children who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (details of how to apply)

Applying for a Coventry school (except All Souls and St Mary & St Benedict Primaries see below)

Please complete the primary in-year application form.

If you are currently living overseas, and are intending to move to Coventry, please note that foreign nationals who do not normally reside in the UK but who wish to apply for a state-funded school place, must check that their children have an immigration status which permits them to enter the UK to access a state-funded school before applying. Further information about school applications for foreign national children and children resident outside England from GOV.UK.

Applicants for Leigh C of E Primary School and Seva School may also need to complete a supplementary information form to enable school governors to fully consider their application against faith-based oversubscription criteria.

The supplementary forms can also be obtained directly from the schools. 

Please return completed supplementary forms directly to the school.

Whatever year group your child is in, it’s important that if you are considering moving schools, you need to make sure that the school you choose is the right one for your child. The best way to find this out is to visit the school you are interested in - speak to the headteacher (with an appointment) if you can.
