School Admissions - Primary Schools

Children normally start primary school at the start of the school year in which their fifth birthday falls (i.e. 1 September to 31 August inclusive).

The closing date for September 2021 admissions was Wednesday 13th January 2021 and therefore any forms submitted now will be classed as a late application and will be considered after all applications which were received on time. You can however still download a Primary School Admission Form here or alternatively contact Kath Worwood on 01495 766915 or email

If you are not a Torfaen resident you will be required to contact your Home Authority to seek advice on how to apply.

If you wish for your child to attend a Voluntary Aided School, you will need to contact the school direct for the necessary admission arrangements.

Full details of the Authority’s Admission arrangements and related issues such as the provision of school transport can be found in the Parents / Carers Information Booklet.

Please note it is your responsibility to ensure an application is submitted by the closing date and failure to do so could affect the outcome of your application.
