Parents and guardians must submit an application form for all children starting school, even if the child has an older brother or sister already in attendance at the respective school.

For children starting primary school, the closing date is Saturday 15 January 2022. The council said making sure applications are in early gives parents and guardians extra time if there are any changes.

Parents and guardians whose children attend Lancashire schools or academies, but live in another local authority area, should apply via the local authority where they live.
