Deadline for school places looms for Dearne Valley parents

DEARNE Valley parents are being urged to hurry and get their children’s applications in for school places.

Parents have until January 15 to apply for places for the September 2014 reception class intake.

The deadline applies to children who are four before September 1, 2014 and born between

September 1, 2009 and August 31, 2010.

Councillor Nuala Fennelly, Cabinet member for children’s services said: “I cannot stress enough how important it is that parents get their applications in for their children’s reception places, to help avoid disappointment.”
