Council in reminder to families ahead of deadline for Sheffield primary school places

Have your say

Parents and carers of young children are being reminded to submit their applications for Sheffield school places.

The deadline for applications for children starting school in September – those born between September 1, 2010 and August 31, 2011 – is on Thursday, January 15.

Coun Jackie Drayton, Sheffield Council cabinet member for children, said: “Planning for your child’s education is important and we want to ensure the process is as easy as possible.

“To boost your chances of getting one of your preferred choices please reply on time and give three preferences.”

Families will be told of their allocated school in April.
