Have your say

Parents of year six pupils will be able to apply to Derbyshire County Council from September 10 for their child’s secondary school place for September 2013.

Applications can be completed online through the council’s website at Parents can complete a paper form, which they can get by emailing or calling 01629 537499.

The deadline to submit applications is midnight on Wednesday, October 31.

When completing the form, parents will be asked to list, in order of preference, the three schools they would most like their child to go to.

Applications submitted after the deadline will not be considered until places have been allocated to those children whose parents did return their form on time. Parents who fail to meet the deadline may find that the school they want their child to go to is full. Any parents who are a refused a place for their child have a right of appeal to an independent panel.
