Cllr Bryony Goodliffe, chair of Cambridgeshire County Council’s Children and Young People’s Committee, said: “Starting primary school is a significant stage of a child’s education and it is essential that the transition is as smooth and seamless as possible. An important part of that process is to apply for a place quickly and accurately, so I would urge parents to do that as soon as possible – and by 15 January at the latest.”
