Par­ents in­vited to ap­ply for pri­mary school places

Rochdale Observer - - SCHOOL HONOUR FOR DALE STAR JOE -

PAR­ENTS of chil­dren who are due to start pri­mary school in Septem­ber 2019 can ap­ply for their child’s first school place on­line from Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 1.

Par­ents can choose up to four schools, with places al­lo­cated based on de­mand.

For those that need as­sis­tance, li­brary staff will be on hand to help across the bor­ough

Coun­cil­lor Kieran Heakin, cab­i­net mem­ber for chil­dren’s ser­vices, said: “Pri­mary school ap­pli­ca­tions are a hugely ex­cit­ing mo­ment for par­ents as their child grows and flour­ishes.

“I know par­ents are ea­ger for this mo­ment, so it is vi­tal they sub­mit their ap­pli­ca­tions by the Jan­uary 15 dead­line.

“I would re­ally en­cour­age peo­ple to use all four pref­er­ences; putting only one pref­er­ence will not guar­an­tee a place at that school.”

School ap­pli­ca­tions can be made by vis­it­ing rochdale.gov.uk/ schoolad­mis­sions and the dead­line for ap­pli­ca­tions is Jan­uary 15, 2019.
