More than 600 families in Dorset have yet to apply for school place for their child for this September.

Dorset Council has issued a reminder to parents, with only eight days left to sign up.

Children born between 01 September 2016 and 31 August 2016 can start their school reception place in September 2020. 

The council say for the best chance of getting a place at their preferred school, parents must apply for their child's place by 15 January 2020.

Parents whose child is due to move to junior or middle school in September 2020 must also apply by 15 January 2020.
