Primary school admissions deadline

10 November 2023

Application forms are being sent to all parents and carers who registered for a Government of Jersey non-fee-charging school place for September 2024. 

Parents and carers must return the form to their catchment school by Friday 1 December 2023. 

Parents and carers can find out their catchment school by:

  • Looking at the map
  • Contacting their local primary school
  • Contacting the Department for Children, Young People, Education and Skills on 445504, or by e-mailing

Parents and carers can request up to three schools in order of choice. Where schools are oversubscribed we prioritise children, in the order below, who:

  1. are a Looked After Child, or have a Special Educational Need and/or Disability (SEN/D) and must access a specific school
  2. have brothers or sisters in the school (Reception class to Year 5)
  3. are living in the primary school's catchment area
  4. are living in the secondary school's catchment area
  5. have a sibling(s) in the school in Year 6
  6. have other requests supported by a good educational reason for attending a non-catchment school

Primary schools will write to all parents/carers at the end of January 2024 to offer places

Parents/carers should inform the school if they no longer need an offered place.

Parents/carers will not be offered a place in a Government of Jersey non-fee-charging primary school if they have registered for a place in a fee-paying school. This is so that parents/carers who need a Government of Jersey non-fee-charging school place have the best chance of getting a place at their chosen school.
