Clos­ing date for school places draw­ing near

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

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.
