The deadline for applications is Sunday, January 15, 2017.

Councillor David Rose, cabinet member for Children, Families and Learning, said: “Parents only have a few days left to apply for their child’s school place for Reception in September 2017. If parents don’t apply this could result in their children not being allocated a place at their preferred school.

“We would encourage parents to apply as soon as possible and provide their preferences of schools that they would like their child to attend. It is quick and easy to do this online.

“We like to see as many children as possible going to a school of their choice. However, this is not always possible, but we will do all we can to try accommodate parents’ wishes.”
