When can my child start school?

Most children start school in the September following their fourth birthday. However, by law a child does not have to start school until the term following their fifth birthday.

Child's Birthday Start school
1 September 2019 to 31 August 2020 September 2024
1 September 2020 to 31 August 2021 September 2025
1 September 2021 to 31 August 2022 September 2026


All reception age children are offered full time places when they start at our school. If parents want their child to attend part time from September or to delay entry until later on in the academic year, please contact us directly to arrange this.


How to apply for a place at this school

The deadline for children to join our school in September 2024 has now passed. 

Wiltshire residents should apply online here:  Apply for a School Place

Non-Wiltshire residents should apply to their own local authority for a place in this school. This also applies to families planning to move to the area (except service personnel, see below).

In the event of oversubscription, we will apply our Admissions Policy's criteria for determining priority of admission (see Admissions Policy on our Policies page).

Heytesbury Primary School reserves the right to request parents to verify their child’s birth date by producing a birth certificate or other official document.
