One week until application deadline for Primary School places
THE deadline for applying for a primary school place in Thurrock is fast approaching with only six days to go.
The deadline for applications is 23:59 on Monday 15 January – although parents and carers are advised to apply as early as possible.
Children who were born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014 must apply for a reception school place for September 2018 by midnight.
Portfolio Holder for Education, Cllr James Halden said: “Last year we successfully placed 94% of children in their first choice primary school with a further 4% securing their second choice. When the deadline is missed, the application is classed as late which jeopardises a child’s chance of attending their preferred school.”
