Following 2 public consultations, Leicestershire County Council adopted a new home to school transport policy with effect from September 2015 that affects mainstream home to school transport arrangements. Please note that the new policy means that the traditional pattern of free transport around Leicestershire has in many cases significantly changed. Therefore, do not assume that because free transport has previously been provided from your area to your child’s school that this will still be the case. Please make yourself aware of the changes to transport provision.

There is free childcare for eligible 2 year olds. Please visit www.leics.gov.uk/family for more information.

If you are thinking of making a request for a school that is not your catchment area school, it is recommended that you visit both the catchment area school and any other schools you are considering in order to make an informed judgement. Every effort is made to agree as many parents’ requests as possible, but sometimes schools do not have enough room for all the requests. If parents want to request a place in the catchment area school for their child they must include the school as one of their preferences on this form.
Although we are asking you to rank your preferences, this does not necessarily mean that we can make you an offer of a place according to those preferences. Please note that for some schools there may not be enough space for all out of catchment children requesting places and some parents’ requests may have to be refused. Even if children from your area have been allowed places in the past, please do not assume that this will be possible in future.
