If your child is due to start school for the first time in September this year, or due to leave their infant school and move to a junior or middle school, the deadline for applications is looming – midnight on Monday 15 January.
It’s really important to get the application in on time, as there is no guarantee of a place at your preferred school if it’s late. MK Council’s guidance on the process says the following:
“If an application form is not received by 15 January 2018 it will not be possible to consider it until all the other applications have been processed. This means that the majority of school places will have already been allocated. Consideration will be given to parents’ preferences, however, if all preferred schools are full, parents will be advised of their right of appeal and a place will be offered at the nearest school with places available.”
