If your child was born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013 you can now apply for a place online.
It is important that parents realise that they must apply for a school place before the deadline; otherwise they risk not being accepted into their preferred or local school.
Parents should visit www.westsussex.gov.uk/admissions to find out where their catchment school is before filling in a simple online application form.
By applying online you can save time and receive an instant email acknowledgement that your application has been submitted.
Parents whose children are due to move to junior school (into Year 3) should also apply by Sunday 15 January.
Parents and guardians can access the internet for two hours free of charge at libraries and Children and Family Centres if they don’t have the ability to log on at home.
