if she is only just turning 3 then she will not start in 2009 but 2010 and you have no need to apply until spet 09

children start reception generally in the school year they turn 5.

my sister for example is born in august so she started reception in the september she had just turned 4, she was 4 for the whole school year but then turned 5 this august and in september started year 1

its unfortunate but thats how it is in cambridge and will be for the rest of her school life - her being the youngest
