There's only a few weeks left for Dorset parents to get their applications in for their child's reception school place.

The deadline is 15th January for parents with children born between 1st September 2010 and 31st August 2011.

Parents are being urged to make sure they must apply as soon as possible to get the best chance of seeing their child start in September next year at one of their preferred schools.

Councillor Toni Coombs, Cabinet member for education at Dorset County Council, said:  "With Christmas nearly upon us, we want to make sure that parents don't forget to send us their applications.

"Starting school is a major milestone in a child's life and I cannot stress enough how important it is that families apply on time, as submitting an application late affects the likelihood of being allocated a place at a preferred school."

All the information, including an online application form, is available at www.dorsetforyou.com/schooladmissions.

Alternatively, families can call 01305 221060 for an application pack to be sent out in the post.

If parents apply online they will be able to view the outcome of their application on dorsetforyou.com next 16 April 2015.
