If your child lives in Northamptonshire, you can make an application for a:
- primary school place for September 2018 if your child has their 4th birthday between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018
- junior school place for September 2018 if your child has their 7th birthday between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 and is in year 2 at an infant school
- middle school place (year 5) in another county for September 2018
If your child is already at primary school and wishes to move to a different school, you will need to
make an in-year application instead.
The closing date for applications is 5pm on 15 January 2018. Any application received after this time will be treated as late and processed in May 2018 and onwards.
The quickest way to apply is online.

Some primary schools require parents to complete a supplementary information form (SIF) in addition to the application made to the county council. You can find a list of schools that this applies to here.
New School - Monksmoor Primary, Daventry
As this school is not yet completed, you cannot at this stage use it as one of your 3 primary school preferences on your application form. However, you can still express an interest for the school by completing the form below.
If you have deferred applying for a place in reception to start in 2018 (rather than 2017) because your child is ‘summer born’, you will not be able to apply online. In this case, you should use the 'Apply by post' option below.
