Parents urged to take action as the deadline for primary school applications is fast approaching

With the deadline just over a week away, Herefordshire Council is reminding parents that time is running out to apply for their child’s primary school place.

Parents are urged to apply for primary school reception classes in Herefordshire, for children who turn five between September 2020 and August 2021 (those born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016).

You must still apply for a reception class place, even if you already have a place in the nursery associated with your preferred school.

You can apply online at www.herefordshire.gov.uk/primaryschooladmissions

For parents or carers who are unable to apply online, a paper application form can be requested from the council’s school admissions team on 01432 260926 / 261574 or email schooladmissions@herefordshire.gov.uk

The closing date for all primary school reception class applications is midnight on Wednesday 15 January 2020.

Late applications may result in your child not being offered a place in your preferred school.
