PARENTS in Cambridgeshire who are applying for secondary school places for their children are being warned that the deadline - and more postal strikes - is looming.

The deadline to submit for 2010 applications is midnight on November 6.

But with more strikes by Royal Mail workers due to take place and a backlog of letters and parcels expected, parents are being urged to complete the forms online.

The forms can be completed at www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/admissions or can be obtained from primary schools and returned to the admissions team at Cambridgeshire County Council.

Completed application forms can also be handed in to primary school and sent to CCC via its internal courier system, which is not affected by the postal strike.

Parents of children in Cambridgeshire due to start primary school in September 2010 have until December 4 to submit their applications for places.
