However, Local Authorities will accept applications from parents with a right of abode if they can provide evidence that they are planning a return/arrival to the United Kingdom.
Hackney Education will accept an application up to 6 weeks before their anticipated arrival date. Satisfactory evidence will need to be provided. Places not taken up by the agreed date will not be held open. Please contact Hackney Education for details.
