THE deadline for parents to apply for their children to attend reception and or primary school is approaching.

Applications received after this date will be considered late which may have a bearing on whether the child gets a place at his / her preferred school.

It is important to note that a school place will not be allocated unless a formal application is received.

The online application form can be found on the Pembrokeshire County Council website: under ‘Apply for a School Place’.
