Parents have just weeks left to apply for their child’s school place.

Families with children born between September 1, 2010 and August 31, 2011 need to apply now for their school place for September 2015.

Three quarters of families in Derbyshire have already applied for their place. but the rest still haven’t told Derbyshire County Council where they’d prefer their child to go.

Forms need to be in by Thursday January 15.

Councillor Kevin Gillott, cabinet member for children and young people, said: “I know families are incredibly busy at this time of year, but I’d remind anyone with a young child to get their application in now for their infant, primary or junior school place.

“I urge anyone who hasn’t had time to do it so far to fill in an online form.

“We want parents to carefully consider which school they would like their child to go to.”
