Parents with children due to start school in September are being reminded that there is just a week left to submit their application.
The deadline for submitting an application to Northamptonshire County Council for a primary school place is 5pm on Thursday January 15.
Applications received after the deadline will not be processed until a later wave of allocations taking place from May 2015 onwards.
Primary school applications can be submitted online at www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/admissions.
Families who submit an online application on time will find out which school they have been allocated on Thursday April 16.
