Final week for primary school applications

Parents of three and four-year-olds are being reminded that they have until Monday to apply for a primary school place for their child for this September.

Parents in Cambridgeshire who have a child born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014 must submit an application by the national closing date of Monday 15 January 2018.

The process, which opened on 16 November 2017, can be completed online at up to 11.59pm on the closing date, or by completing a paper application form, which can be obtained from any Cambridgeshire primary school.

Parents choosing to post their applications must ensure these are received by the Admissions Team at Cambridgeshire County Council no later than Monday 15 January 2018 the last working day before the closing date.

If parents submit their applications late there is a risk that their child will not be offered a place at one of their preferred schools, as their application will not be considered until after the national offer date of Monday 16 April 2018.

The national closing date for primary school places is just around the corner
