Don’t forget - the closing date for primary school place applications is January 15.
The quickest and easiest way to apply is online, via the county council’s website - last year, 85% 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 , and search for ‘school admissions’ where you’ll find all the information you need.
