The closing date for applications for primary school places in 2022 for children across the Tees area is this weekend.

Parents and carers have until Saturday 15th January to submit their applications. Any received after this date will only be considered after those made on time have been processed.

If your child was born between 1st September 2017 and 31st August 2018, they will be due to start primary school in September 2022.

You can apply for up to three schools and you can provide reasons for your choices in your application.

Even if your child already attends a nursery, you still need to complete the application – there is no automatic transfer from nursery to primary school.
