If your child was born between September 1, 2011 and August 31, 2002, you have until Friday to apply for a primary school place.

Children born between these dates are due to start in Reception in September this year.

Parents are able to list up to six schools that they would like their child to attend – including, should they choose, those in another London borough.

Those who would like their child to be considered for a place at a faith school should also complete a supplementary information form.

Even if your child already attends the nursery at your preferred school or has older siblings there, you must still apply online.

Parents of twins or other multiple births must submit a separate application for each child.

Any applications received after the closing date will still be processed but not until all the families who applied on time have been given places.
