HARLOW parents who have yet to apply for their children’s primary school places are being reminded to do so as the deadline for applications approaches.
All children are entitled to start primary school in the September after their fourth birthday.
Parents and carers of children born during the period 1 September 2011 and 31 August 2012 must apply by 15 January 2016 for primary school places for the 2016-17 intake.
Applications can be made at www.essex.gov.uk/admissions.The website also enables parents to check admissions criteria and search for school information.
Cllr Ray Gooding, Essex County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Lifelong Learning, said: “It is vital applications are received on time and I would urge any parents who haven’t already applied for their child’s place to do so by 15 January 2016.
“When making applications, it is also important that parents consider admissions criteria carefully and give themselves the best opportunity to be considered for a school they want by using all four preferences.”
Any applications submitted after the deadline on 15 January 2016 will be considered once all on-time applications have been determined.
