Parents invited to apply for primary school places
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.
