Time is running out for parents in West Norfolk to apply for secondary school places for their children next year.

The deadline for applications is midnight tomorrow and Norfolk County Council officials have warned that any applications submitted after then will be treated as a lower priority.

That means parents would be unlikely to receive their first choice.

Around 8,500 children are due to begin attending secondary schools across Norfolk in September 2016.

Parents can specify up to three preferences and are strongly advised to include the school in whose catchment area they live.

Decisions on the allocation of school places will be announced on March 1.
