The deadline is approaching for parents in South Tyneside to secure the school place they want for their child.

South Tyneside Council's closing date for applications for a primary school place is on Friday, January 15, at 4.30pm.

The best way to apply for a school place is online via the council's website, by clicking here.
Coun Joan Atkinson, Lead Member for Children, Young People and Families said: "After a busy Christmas I am sure everyone enjoyed their family time.

"Now when the New Year is fast approaching it is important for parents, who have not already applied, to get their applications in for a primary school place."

Applicants are asked to specify, in order of priority, three schools on the application form they would prefer their child to attend.
