Don’t forget, the closing date for online primary school place applications is Friday 15 January.
The quickest and easiest way to apply is online via the county council’s website – last year 95% of parents used this method.
Staff at Lancashire County Council are keen to remind parents that they need to submit an application form for all children starting school, even if the child already has an older brother or sister at their preferred school.
For more information go to www.lancashire.gov.uk/schools, where you’ll find all the information you need.
Parents can also call 0300 123 6707, from Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm.
Anyone who has started to complete their application form, or has completed one but not submitted it yet, is reminded that this is their opportunity to do so.
Parents whose children attend Lancashire primary schools or academies, but live in another local authority area, should apply via the local authority where they live.
