Don’t miss the deadline to apply for school places for September 2020, urges Dorset Council, the education authority.
With only eight days left to sign up, it says there are still over 600 families who have yet to apply.
Children born between 01 September 2015 and 31 August 2016 can start their school reception place in September 2020.
For the best chance of getting a place at their preferred school, parents must apply for their child’s place by 15 January 2020.
Parents whose child is due to move to junior or middle school in September 2020 must also apply by 15 January 2020.
