Ledbury parents are being urged to apply for their children’s primary school places before the deadline.

If your child was born between September 1, 2017 and August 31, 2018, you have until midnight on January 15 to apply for their reception class place for September 2022.

Herefordshire Council said hundreds of applications for primary school places still need to be submitted and time is running out.

Failure to submit an application could result in your child not being offered a place in a preferred school.

You must still apply for a reception class place, even if you already have a place in the nursery associated with your preferred school.

Applications can be completed online at www.herefordshire.gov.uk/reception-class-admissions

If you need support to complete your child’s application, you can contact the council’s school admissions team on 01432 260926 / 261574 or email schooladmissions@herefordshire.gov.uk
