Welcome to the Somerset County Council Citizen Portal

School Admissions

You can use this portal to apply for a school place at a primary, infant, junior, middle or secondary school in September. Please do not use this portal if you are applying for an in-year admission, contact the school directly. If you do not live in Somerset, you must submit your application to your home Local Authority. If you do not, your application will not be considered.

Please note: If you previously applied for a child starting or transferring school in 2017 or earlier, you will need to re-register on the portal as a new system was introduced at this time.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

You can use this portal to track a young person's progress through the Education Health and Care (EHC) assessment and review process. Currently, this new functionality is only available as a pilot for parents, carers and students (over the age of 16) to track progress of NEW Requests for EHC Assessments.

Individuals who can participate in the pilot will be contacted directly following a `Yes to Assess' decision by the Local Authority.
