PARENTS with children due to start primary school in September this year have a few days left to apply for a place.
The deadline for applications to South Gloucestershire schools is Wednesday, January 15 in line with national timescales.
Parents with children born between September 1 2009 and August 31 2010 should apply for places at infant or primary school to start from September 2014.
Online applications can be made at www.southglos.gov.uk/primaryadmissions or by calling 01454 868008.
South Gloucestershire Council said applications submitted after the closing date be treated as late and will be considered only after all on-time applicants have been considered. This may mean that late applicants are disadvantaged in gaining a place at their preferred school.
Residents of other areas should apply directly to their local authority.
