PARENTS have until Thursday to secure a secondary school place for their children.
Essex County Council is urging parents to select six preferences to make sure their child gets a place at school.
Applications for their school of choice must be made to Essex County Council by visiting essex.gov.uk/admissions Here parents can also search for school information, read Ofsted reports, check admissions criteria and catchment areas, and submit applications so they can make an informed decision.
Ray Gooding, councillor responsible for education and lifelong learning, said: “Although we are able to provide most families with their preferred school, schools can become oversubscribed, so it is very important for parents to use all six preferences.”
