Admission Arrangements

Hartlepool Local Authority operates single-term entry for children starting primary school. If you have a child(ren) born between 1st September 2017 and 31st August 2018 they will be due to start Primary School in September 2022.

The application period is between 8th November 2021 and 15th January 2022. You can make your application on-line during this period*. Before you submit your application please read the Education in Hartlepool booklet - September 2022 carefully. The booklet provides information on the admission process, key dates and lots of information which you may find useful, including delaying your child’s entry into primary school and applying for your child to be educated out of year group.

To secure your child's place at primary school, you must submit your application (along with any supporting documents such as a baptism certificate) by 15th January 2022. If your application is received after this deadline, we will treat it as late and deal with it after the applications which were received on time.
