Less than two weeks left to apply for primary school place

PARENTS in Cambridgeshire who have a child born between 1 September 2007 and 31 August 2008 are reminded that they have less than two weeks to apply for a primary school place for their child for this September.

The process, which opened on 14 November 2011, can be completed online at www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/admissions or by returning a paper form, which can be obtained from any primary school and returned to the Admissions Team at Cambridgeshire County Council.

The completed form must be received by the Admissions Team by the close of business on the national closing date, 15 January 2012.

If parents submit their applications late - or do not make an application - there is a risk that their child will not offered a place at one of their preferred schools, including their catchment school, as other children’s applications (those received by the deadline) will be processed ahead of theirs.
