Wigan LA wrote  to all parents of Y6 pupils with information on how to apply. This letter also gave you a UID number which the portal may ask for. When applying you do not need the UID number to complete an application form, this is for the LA's benefit when matching the application form to the child’s record.


In school we have a copy of the paper application form, for you to print if you are unable to complete the online application form. (Please just ask the office if you need us to print it for you.)


Parents/carers can contact Wigan LA on 01942 489013 for any queries. The customer contact centre have been trained on how to use the school admission portal so can guide parent/carer through completing an application form.
