Applying for a reception school place for September 2021


If you live in Nottinghamshire and require a school place for September 2021, you must apply between 9th November 2020 and 15th January 2021 directly to Nottinghamshire County Council.  John Clifford School does not determine its own admission arrangements.

In-Year Admissions

Consultation on Admission Arrangements 2021/2022


The County Council is required by the School Admissions Code to determine admission arrangements annually. Any changes have to be consulted upon prior to determination.


Every year, at the autumn term governing body meeting, an important agenda item is the consultation about the admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools. This year, the consultation is in relation to the admission arrangements for 2021/2022 and will run from 7th October 2019 and 24 November 2019.  An analysis of governing body minutes suggests that almost all of you engage positively with the process. It is important that all consultees have an opportunity to comment on the proposed arrangements if they wish to do so.

Nottinghamshire’s consultation on admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools together with the coordinated schemes will be available on our website during the above dates
