Apply by phone for a primary school place

Parents who cannot apply online can make an application by phone from 11 November 2019. This will be available until the contact centre closes on 15 January 2020.


Online admissions will then close for a short period after this date and time and then re-open to accept late applications.

Call Derbyshire tel: 01629 533190 and a member of our contact centre staff will fill in an application for you.

The contact centre is open from 8am to 8pm, Monday to Friday, and Saturdays from 9:30am to 4pm.

Information you'll need when applying by phone:

  • a decision about the 3 preferences we invite you to make and your reasons

  • your child's address and postcode

Why apply by phone

There are many reasons why you might want to apply by phone.

It's quick and easy to do - usually around 15 minutes to complete a telephone application.

Contact centre staff can make sure the application is filled in correctly.

You'll receive a copy of your completed application form either by email or in the post.

If you want to change your mind you can phone Call Derbyshire, quoting your username, password and unique identification number, and amend your application.
