Parents with children starting secondary school next year are being urged to apply for places now or risk missing out on their first choice.

Applications for children transferring from primary schools to secondary schools across Nottinghamshire next September must be in by Saturday, October 31, 2016.

Parents are being warned that if they apply after the deadline, their submission will only be processed after all the on-time ones are completed; this could result in their first choice school being full.

The county council will then make an alternative offer of a place at a school which could be at a distance from your home address.

Parents are also being reminded they need to apply through Nottinghamshire County Council, even if they wish to apply for schools in other areas such as Nottingham City or Derbyshire.

Nottinghamshire County Council’s acting service director for education Marion Clay said: “It probably seems no time at all since parents were looking for a reception place for their child and deciding which schools to apply for.

“However, if a child has just gone into Year 6 at primary school, it’s now time to start thinking about applying for a place at secondary for next September.

“This time around it might also feel more complicated because your child may have strong ideas about which secondary school they want – or don’t want – to attend. And their ideas may not always be the same as yours.

“The good news, however, is that last year, over 98% of families who applied for a secondary school place on time was offered one of their preferred schools.”

Parents can apply for a place online now. Once they’ve submitting their application they will receive an email confirming that their application has been received.
