Closing date nears for primary school applications

Parents and carers across Leicestershire are being reminded by the county council to apply for their children's primary school place -  before the closing date of Wednesday, 15th January.

A range of information is available at www.leicestershire.gov.uk/admissions to help families start the application process and submit their preferences for schools, including advice to help parents and carers make a successful application.

Choosing which schools to apply for is one of the most important decisions a family can make, and we are committed to working with parents and carers to support them as they make this choice.

Last year, over 97 per cent of Leicestershire parents secured their child a place at a preferred school so we want to remind parents to maximise their opportunities by applying for three schools, including the school in their catchment area. There is no automatic entry for any school, so it is very important for applications to be submitted before the closing date.

Alternatively, they may call the Customer Service Centre on 0116 305 6684 and request a form to be sent out.
