A standard application form and information will be available to parents in early September, whose children are due to commence school in the following academic year. All parents will be advised that it is in their own best interests to confirm in writing, using the LEA application form, what their preference for a school place is, regardless of whether they opt for their nearest school, or one further away. These forms should be returned via an online application or to the parents’ preferred school, which will pass them on to the Education Department to administer the allocations procedure.
