Parents and guardians urged to apply for a primary school place as deadline approaches

Falmouth Packet: Parents and guardians urged to apply for a primary school place as deadline approaches Parents and guardians urged to apply for a primary school place as deadline approaches

If your child was born between September 1, 2009 and August 31, 2010, the deadline to apply for a primary school place is 23:59 on Wednesday, January 15 ,(tomorrow).

Cornwall Council is urging all parents and guardians who haven’t yet applied for a school place for their child to do so as soon as possible.

Saying there is no advantage to those who leave their application until the last minute., the advice to all parents and guardians is to get your application in now and not to leave it until the deadline day.

All applications submitted after January 15 will not be processed until after all those applications submitted by the deadline. There will therefore be a delay before a place can be allocated and it is highly possible that a number of schools will already be full.

A council spokesman said: "Starting school is an important step for every child and their family. Cornwall Council is committed to ensuring that it supports all children, parents and guardians through the application process so that it goes as smoothly as possible."

Maybe some of those that have not yet applied for a placement have registered for a private school.
