Primary and First School Applications for children starting school in
Closing Date for Applications 15th January 2022
We are asking all Early Years Partners and schools, to assist us in emphasising to parents the importance of making an application on time. The facility to make an online application is now open at www.worcestershire.gov.uk/schooladmissions.
Could you please ensure that you include in your communication messages to parents, a reminder that the closing date for Primary and First School applications is the 15th January 2022.
The importance of making an application on time cannot be stressed enough. This year more than any other, has highlighted to us the huge impact that making a late application can have on the most vulnerable of children. A late application can only be considered after all those received on time, this places those children at a disadvantage In areas where place availability is more limited some of the most vulnerable families, applying late, cannot be accommodated in their local schools,
and in some cases, have not been able to attend the same school as their siblings.
If you have parents/carers that you feel would benefit from some support in applying, guidance and support in relation to the application process can be provided by, the Worcestershire Hub on 01905 822700, The School Admissions Team on 01905 844111 and SENDIASS via: http://www.hwsendiass.co.uk/.
