Applications are now open for children starting primary and junior school in September 2024, Powys County Council has said.

Parents or carers have until Friday 5 January 2024 to complete their application.

Cllr Pete Roberts, Cabinet Member for a Learning Powys, said: "All parents/carers are encouraged to complete this application as soon as possible for a place in a primary school in September 2024.

"If it is not completed in time, then this has the potential to jeopardise their child's place at their preferred school."

Parents/Carers need to complete an online application at Applying for a School Place by Friday 5 January 2024.
