Year R Admissions 2021
We are rapidly approaching the national closing date for Year R (September 2021) applications.
The national closing date for Year R and Year 3 applications is midnight on Friday, 15 January 2021.
If you have not applied for your child's placement you can either apply online at www.hants.gov.uk/admissions or on a paper application form.
LATE Applications: The online form will remain open for LATE applications, from 12:01AM on 16 January through to 31 August 2021. From Monday 18 January, a LATE version of the Year R application form will be available who do not wish to apply online. Like the online form, the paper form can be used for all applications from 16 January through to 31 August 2021. We encourage parents to apply online.
We are aware that there maybe exceptional circumstances that result in some families submitting their application late (for example, the parent has been hospitalised for a significant period of time or the family have only recently moved to the area from abroad). In this situation, it is recommended that the family provides an explanation of their circumstances along with their late application. Also, please email the admissions team with details of their circumstance for our consideration - where mitigating circumstances have occurred - we may be able to process the application as an on-time.
Late applications received between 16 January and 15 April 2021 will be processed on Monday 26 April 2021. Applications received on and after 16 April 2021 will be processed from Tuesday 27 April 2021.
The Local Authority will continue to handle all applications after 16 April through to 31 August 2021
