All children living in the East Riding of Yorkshire whose parents apply for a school place will be given a school place. If a place cannot be given at a school named on the application form, the School Admissions Team will first try to give your child a place at your catchment area school. If this is not possible, the School Admissions Team will identify the nearest school in the East Riding of Yorkshire with a place available.
Waiting lists are maintained for places in the normal year of entry at East Riding of Yorkshire infant, junior, primary and secondary schools which are over-subscribed. A child’s name will be automatically put on the waiting list for a place at a school if the child has not been given a place at a school ranked as a higher preference.
Waiting lists are renewed at the beginning of the autumn term. If you want your child’s name to remain on the waiting list until the end of the autumn term, you must contact the School Admissions Teamin September.
Waiting lists for the normal year of entry are then deleted at the end of the autumn term in December and are no longer used. Waiting lists are not used for any other year groups.
Applicants refused a place at a school for their child will be given the right to appeal. Appeals will be heard by independent admission appeal panels.
You can find out more from the School Admission Appeals page.
You will not be able to apply online for a school place after the closing dates.
