Welcome to the Citizen Portal

This portal is used for the below:

  • Applying for a school place
  • Applying for Free School Meals

Please be aware that a small number of users may have difficulty in accessing the system from a mobile device, very often linked to the text sizing of that device, some users have found they cannot find a SUBMIT button. If this does occur, try turning your device to landscape (on its side) to enlarge the information you can see on your screen. If you continue to have any difficulties, you can also try using a laptop or computer.

School Admissions Applications

The system will be available for School Admission Applications from 1st September 2022 onwards.

For starting school or transferring to the next phase of education for September 2023, this portal must only be used by Worcestershire Residents, those that pay council tax to Worcestershire County Council. If you pay your council tax to any other Local Authority, such as Birmingham City, Warwickshire CC, Gloucestershire CC, Dudley MBC etc you will need to use that Local Authority website to apply.

If you are making an application to transfer in-year from the same year group in one school to the same year group in another school now, you can use this system for any Worcestershire School, no matter where you are resident.

Free School Meal Applications

This portal should be used by anyone attending a Worcestershire school apart from:

  • Bengeworth CE Academy
  • Bretforton First School
  • Carnforth School
  • Feckenham First School
  • Hollymount School
  • Stanley Road Primary School
  • Woodrush High School

Applications will need to be made directly to these schools.

If your child is starting school in September, we will acknowledge your application now and confirm arrangements with you and your child's school in August, but we will keep your details until then. No need to reapply.
