Late applications

Late applications will be considered after all applications received before the closing date.

Late applications will be considered after all applications received before the closing date. In exceptional circumstances, an application received after the closing date may be considered as on time, where a:

  1. Single parent living alone with their child has been ill for some time. The application must be supported by a doctor's note and evidence of being a single parent.
  2. House move over three miles for secondary and two miles for primary, within or into Calderdale has been completed between:
    • 31st October 2023 and 31st December 2023 for secondary schools;
    • 15th January 2024 and 15th February 2024 for primary schools.

    (This is determined by a straight line measurement.)

    The application must be supported by appropriate evidence. (Such as, solicitor's letter to confirm completion of house purchase or copy of rental agreement for a property in Calderdale. Both of these must be relevant to residency).

  3. Service family (or crown servants returning from overseas) has moved into the area after the closing date. The application will be treated as 'on time' wherever this is practicable to do so.

House moves of less than three miles for secondary and two miles for primary are not exceptional circumstances. (As determined by a straight line measurement).

Exceptional circumstances can only be considered where an application has been received with:

  • Any supplementary forms and supporting evidence;
  • by 31st December 2023 for secondary and 15th February 2024 for primary schools.

A late preference for a non-Calderdale school can only be considered before offer day. (If the admission authority and local authority determine there is enough time to consider it.)
