PARENTS have less than two weeks to apply for a primary school place for their children.

Applications are being accepted for children due to start reception in September - those born between September 1, 2015 and August 31, 2016, inclusive.

Oxfordshire County Council opened the applications process in November and the deadline for submission is Wednesday, January 15.

Late applications will be processed later and children are less likely to get a place at one of their preferred schools.

Three new primary schools are due to open in Oxfordshire in September - Barton Park Primary School in Oxford, Cherry Fields Primary School in Banbury, and GEMS Wantage Primary School in Wantage.

Anyone who wants to apply to those should make an expression of interest to the relevant multi-academy trust, as well as submitting their other preferences to the council.
