Apply for a school placement
Now is the time to apply for a placement in preschool class and primary school for the school year 2024/2025. Your application can be submitted from January 10 to 31 January 2024.
An application must be submitted during the period if your child:
- is going to start preschool class in the fall semester 2024
- is attending a school which is not offering the next grade
- wants to change schools even though the current school offers the next year’s grade
Apply via e-service
You can apply for a placement during the period 10-31 January, and when you apply during this period doesn’t matter. Indicate your requests for schools via the e-service. Easiest way to log in to the e-service is with e-identification.
Good to know
A custodial parent applies for a placement, but both custodial parents must confirm the school application. All custodial parents will receive ongoing information about the status of the application via e-mail.
This is how the placements are allocated
The independent schools have their own queues and admission rules for placement. Contact the relevant independent school before applying for a school placement to get more information about the school's rules for admission.
In municipal schools, we place the children in accordance to the family's wishes and the principle of relative proximity. All children who are registered in Sollentuna are entitled to a placement at a municipal school. According to the Education Act, the student is entitled to attend a school “close to home”. But it doesn’t imply that you have a guaranteed placement in the nearest school or have priority.
When you make a school application, you enter three different options. The children are placed according to wishes as far as it is possible. When a municipal school has filled its quota, it is how the children live in relation to the school which determines who gets a placement. The distance to the desired school is compared with the distance to a school of reference. The school of reference is the closest or second closest school.
What happens next?
During the period March-April, you will receive a decision on placement via the e-service. You will receive a notification via e-mail when you have received a decision.
Do you need access to a computer?
At all the municipality's libraries, you can borrow a computer and surf wirelessly. You can also visit the municipality's contact center in Turebergshuset to borrow a computer.
