Luton residents who have children born between September 1, 2010 and 31 August 2011, must apply for a statutory school place before January 15, 2015.

Luton Borough Council’s Admissions Team will be sending out letters which will include important information on the admissiobns process and details on how to apply online or obtain an application form.

Councillor Waheed Akbar said: “Starting school is a crucial milestone for young children so it’s important parents do everything they can to get their child to attend a school they have selected for them.

“I would urge parents to read the admission booklet, paying particular attention to the schools’ oversubscription criteria, to find out the likelihood of gaining a place at their preferred schools.

“Parents must ensure they state three different schools on their application, ensuring that at least one preference is a realistic option. Don’t wait to the last minute to apply, if you haven’t already done so, do it now!”
