Parents in Gedling borough urged ‘not to panic’ over primary school places

Parents in Gedling borough are being reminded there is still time for them to apply online for a primary school place for their child.

Those looking to get a reception place for their child this September still have more than a week to complete the online form before the January 15 deadline.

Nottinghamshire County Council are also reminding parents that if their child is attending a foundation unit, nursery class or early years’ group it doesn’t guarantee a place in the main school’s reception class. They must still complete a form online.

Nottinghamshire County Council’s acting service director for education Marion Clay said: “I’d ask parents not to panic if they haven’t already made their application. It’s a particularly busy time of year and I know they’ll have had a lot to juggle in the run-up to Christmas.

“However, applying for a place in good time can help to make the whole process run smoothly.”
