Time is Running out to Apply for a Primary School Place

Parents in South Tyneside who are yet to apply for a primary school place are being reminded that the deadline to submit their application is looming.

The deadline for applications for a primary, infant or junior school place for September 2021 is 4.30pm on Friday 15 January.

Deputy Leader, Councillor Joan Atkinson, said: "While I appreciate people will have celebrated a different sort of Christmas this year, I hope everyone enjoyed a relaxing time over the festive period.

"With the festivities now over, this is the perfect time to sort out the important tasks that may have been overlooked in the run-up to Christmas.

"I would encourage parents and carers to fill in the admissions form online before the deadline. Failure to do so could seriously jeopardise the chances of securing a place for their child at their preferred school."
