Cambridgeshire parents are being warned not to miss out on a September 2022 school place for their child
Children in Cambridgeshire due to start at primary school this September are being reminded that they must apply for a place this weekend.
Applications must be completed and submitted by tomorrow (Saturday).
Online applications are encouraged. Children starting at primary or junior school will be notified about their school place on national offer day, 19 April 2022.
It is important that parents and carers apply to the correct council. If you are a Cambridgeshire resident you will have to make your application through Cambridgeshire County Council’s Admissions Team, even if you want to apply for a school outside Cambridgeshire.
Parents are encouraged to apply for a place at their child’s catchment school to maximise the chances of obtaining a place.

Cllr Bryony Goodliffe, chair of Cambridgeshire County Council’s children and young people’s committee, said: “Starting primary school is a significant stage of a child’s education and it is essential that the transition is as smooth and seamless as possible. An important part of that process is to apply for a place quickly and accurately, so I would urge parents to do that as soon as possible – and by Saturday January 15 at the latest.”
