Parents in Lancashire are being reminded that the closing date for primary school applications is January 15.
The quickest and easiest way to apply is online, via the county council’s website. Last year, 85 per cent of parents used this method.
Parents need to submit an application form for all children starting school even if the child has an older brother or sister at their preferred school.
