Infant to Junior School Transition

Children born from 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017 who attend an infant school, will need to apply a year 3 junior place in an infant or primary school for September 2024.  This does not apply to children who attend a primary school unless their parent/carer wants to change their child’s school for September 2023.

 ​National closing date for on time junior applications 15 January 2024

National offer date for on time junior applicants 16 April 2024

All junior school (or year 3 in a primary school) applications for entry must be made through the family’s home local authority.​

For children living in Newham families must apply via London Borough of Newham. 

For children lives outside Newham, whose family wants them to attend this school their application must be made through their home borough naming this school as a preference on their application.

Remember, parents/carers with children on roll in a year 2 class of an infant school must apply for a junior place in a school, even if the child:

  • Has a brother or sister who attending this school.

Before submitting a junior school application we strongly recommend all families read the autumn 2020 edition of the local authorities ‘Starting Primary School’ guide and find out information about the school you are interested in.
