Staff will be on hand to provide support to complete the enrolment forms and answer any questions you may have.

Parents need to bring their child’s birth certificate or passport, a council tax statement (for the current year), and a utility bill: gas, electricity, telephone landline/Broadband (within the last 3 months).

Please also bear in mind the general eligibility information as available on the council website.
