Over 800 Dorset children still haven't had their applications for their reception school places submitted with just one day left until the deadline.

If parents don't hand in the forms they won't get their child into their preferred schools.

Cllr Toni Coombs, Cabinet member for education at Dorset County Council, said: "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 their preferred school."

The cut-off point is looming for children born between 1st September 2010 and 31st August 2011.

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.
