Disruption to school admissions service

We're prioritising primary and secondary school allocations for September 2020 so that all pupils have notification of their allocated place. 

Transfer requests for both schools and nurseries are being deferred until further notice.

If you try to contact us by phone you may have difficulty due to staffing issues; the best way to contact us is by emailing admissions@barnsley.gov.uk

We're working with the council’s governance team to schedule appeals as a matter of priority, now we've received advice from the government. We'll notify you of your arrangements shortly and thank you for your patience and understanding.
