The deadline for primary school applications is less than a week away – with parents being urged to submit their options.

Parents and carers have a few days left to submit their options for children who are set to start primary school September 2022.

The deadline for all applications is this Saturday (January 15).

Parents and carers can apply for up to six primary schools, listing them in order of preference.

Greenwich councillor Matt Morrow, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, has urged families to submit their applications before it’s too late. Cllr Morrow said: “We are blessed with fantastic primary schools in our borough, filled with hardworking and caring teachers.

“It’s important for families to submit their applications before the deadline so our team can work to give students the best start to their primary education.
