Foreign Nationals


Until 31 December 2020 All European Economic Area (‘EEA’) and Swiss national children, had the right, under freedom of movement and UK immigration law, to enter the country to access a school.  Freedom of movement into the UK ended at the end of 2020.


Any EEA or Swiss national arriving in the UK by 31 December 2020 was eligible to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme until 29 March 2022 to continue to be able to study in schools in England as they do now, if their application was successful.  The scheme is still open for joining family members and those who have ‘reasonable grounds’ for not applying by the 29 March 2022 deadline. The criteria for both cohorts are set out on the EU Settlement Scheme page.


'Non EEA' nationals entering the UK, who wish to apply for a state-funded school place, should check that they have a right of abode or that the conditions of their immigration status otherwise permit them to access a state-funded school.


Foreign nationals cannot use the 6-month Standard Visitor visa, or 11-month Short-term Study (English language) visa, to enter the UK to enrol as a pupil at a school.


Children aged under 18 are classed as dependent children if they are the children of foreign nationals who have settled status in the UK, or who are entering the UK on a work visa or Student visa, or who are part of a family entering or residing in the UK under the immigration route for British National (Overseas) citizens and their dependants. These children are entitled to enter the country with their family, or to join their family and study at a state-funded or independent school once in the UK


Parents are reminded to ensure their child holds the correct entry visa before making a school application. If a school or the local authority has concerns about a particular child’s immigration status they will refer the case to the Home Office.
