Families with children due to start primary school in Leicestershire this autumn are reminded they need to apply by Monday.

There is no automatic entry for any school and any 2024 first-time primary applications made after the closing date will be processed after those made on time.

Families are encouraged to select three schools, including one in their catchment area, to have the best chance of securing a place at a local school.
