Primary School Application Process Opens Next Week

Parents in Cambridgeshire who want their child to start primary school next September can start applying next week.

Applications must be submitted for any child born between 1 September 2009 and 31 August 2010, who wishes to start primary school in September 2014.

The completed form must be received by the County Council’s admissions team by midnight on the national closing date, 15 January 2014.

The process can be completed online at: http://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/childrenandfamilies/education/primary/apply-primary/applyingforprimaryschoolplace.htm  or by returning a paper form, which can be obtained from children’s centres, early years settings or any primary school and returned to the admissions team at the County Council.

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.
