Don’t miss out on the deadline for 2020 primary school admissions

classroomTags Children , Family , Residents

Is your child due to start primary school in September 2020? Then please remember the deadline for applications is next Wednesday, 15 January.

Although parents won’t find out the results until mid-April, it is vitally important that they apply by the deadline.

Late applications could mean parents are less likely to secure a place for their child at their preferred school.

Councillor Evelyn Carpenter, Cabinet Member for Educational Attainment and School Improvement said: “This is an important time in your child’s life and one that shouldn’t be taken without consideration.

“Please make sure you get your child’s application and use all six preferences in by the end of Wednesday.”

Nine out of 10 Barking and Dagenham schools are rated Good or Outstanding.

You can apply for your child’s place online.
