Time is running out for parents and guardians to apply for school places in Cornwall.
The county’s council says parents and guardians who haven't yet applied for a school place for their child to do so as soon as possible.
A spokesman for the council said there is no advantage to those who leave their application until the last minute.
“Our advice to all parents and guardians is to get your application in now and not to leave it until the deadline day, January 15,” he said.
The spokesman said all applications submitted after January 15 will not be processed until after all those applications submitted before the deadline.
“There will therefore be a delay before a place can be allocated and it is highly possible that a number of schools will already be full,” he said.
