Starting School - Reception September 2022 Intake

Reception – September 2022 intake


Do you need to apply for Reception 2022?


If your child was born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018, and you live in Cambridgeshire you need to apply for Reception for September 2022.

You can apply for a primary school place for September 2022 from 10 September 2021.  The deadline for applications is 15 January 2022 – you will then get an offer on 19 April 2022.


Before you apply for a school place

  1. Check you are applying to the correct council. If you are a Cambridgeshire resident you will make your application through the Cambridgeshire Admissions Team, even if you want to apply for a school outside of Cambridgeshire.
  2. Research your options, understand what a catchment school is and how it affects your application and school transport. Look at admissions data, school's inspection results and performance data. 
  3. Make sure you read the 'First Steps' primary admissions booklet (below). This will explain the application process from start to finish. The booklet also contains a list of all the Infant, Junior and Primary schools in the Cambridgeshire area, along with their allocation criteria.


Littleport Primary School will advertise open events as soon as they are agreed – we inform the pre-schools in Littleport who pass on to families and will update our website with information.
