Admissions Arrangements 2023-24

In-Year Admissions (EYFS through to Year 6)

 If you wish to apply for a place at Chilton Primary School during the academic year, you should contact the main school office on 01449 612928 or download our in-year application form  here.


Applying for a Place for 2023/24 (EYFS – Reception Class)

Admissions into Reception are handled by Suffolk County Council and are now open.

You must apply for a primary school place by 15 January 2023

You'll need to make an application even if your child is already attending a nursery class in an infant or primary school, a pre-school, or a family hub next to a school site.

This is because a place in a nursery class, pre-school or family hub does not guarantee your child a full-time place at that school.

  • will receive confirmation of your application by email
  • can check or change your application right up to the closing date
  • can view the outcome of your application online on the offer day

 To apply after the deadline you will need to complete a CAF1 paper application form and send to Admissions Team, Endeavour House, 8 Russell Road, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP1 2BX or email 



If your application is unsuccessful and you wish to appeal the decision to refuse your child a place at this school, an appeal form is available here or see links.
