Closing date for school places drawing near
PARENTS across the region are being reminded that the closing date to apply for places at their preferred primary schools is fast approaching.
Families with children due to start primary school for the first time next September, are being urged to get in their applications now as they only have until Tuesday January 15, 2019 to submit them.
Ivan Ould, Leicestershire county council cabinet member for children and families, said: “We are reminding parents of te closing date and to shortlist up to three primary schools that they want to include on their application.
“There is no automatic entry system for any school in the county.
“Parents are encouraged to make their application online and to ensure they exercise their right to apply for three school preferences. Late applications have the lowest priority being processed after those made on time.”
Once an application has been received, parents should receive an email receipt confirming their choices have been submitted.
More information about the application process can be found through the county council’s website at www.leicestershire.gov.uk/ admissions.
