Deadline for school applications
LEICESTERSHIRE parents and carers with children due to start secondary school next year are reminded to apply for places at their preferred schools by 31 October.
Visit www.leicestershire.gov.uk/admissions to find out more and start the process.
Ivan Ould, Leicestershire County Council cabinet member for children and families, said: “Last year 96% of Leicestershire parents submitted their application online and we encourage people to use this approach.
“We also want to remind parents to shortlist and then apply for the maximum of three different schools, including their catchment school.
“There is no automatic entry for any school, so it is very important for applications to be completed in full and submitted before the closing date.”
Parents and carers with children starting school for the first time in September 2019 can also apply now for primary school places via the weblink above.
The deadline for primary school admission applications is January 15. Applications for children moving from infant to junior school also need to be sent in by the same date.
