Welcome to the Leicester Citizen Portal

The Citizen Portal allows parents of children who live in Leicester to make applications for:

- Funded Early Education for 2 year old children

Check your eligibility using your National Insurance or NASS reference number.

An instant decision will be given if your application is made under the economic criteria. Non-economic applications will be responded to after all verification processes have been completed.

- School Admissions

Submit an application for a school place - we will only accept one application per child.

The timescales for processing applications can be found on our website at

Decisions are not instant and responses will be given on National Offer dates, or after processing (In Year application).

The Portal also allows parents, carers and young people to view, and share, information with the Local Authority in relation to Education, Health and Care plans (EHCP)

Further information and support

To use the Portal you will need to register using a valid email address. Once registered you are able to add and amend your family's information and make applications for the above services.

Two-Factor Authentication Codes: If you are accessing the SEND section of the Portal, once you have entered your user name and password successfully, the system will send you an authentication code via email. This code needs to be used immediately to complete the portal log in process.
