Essex County Councillor Stephen Castle, Cabinet Member for Education said: “Applying for the first school for your child can be daunting process. Last year we were able to provide most parents with their preferred school but schools can become oversubscribed so it is very important for parents to select more than one preference and keep their options open.”
