TIME is running out to get children places at preferred primary schools.
Parents and carers of children born between September 1, 2005 and August 31, 2006 have until January 29 to apply for a primary school place in Bexley.
The council is advising people that the safest way to apply is online through the council's website.
A spokeswoman for the council said: "The added advantage of applying on-line is that parents and carers do not have to produce their council tax bills at their primary schools."
The e-admission website is available at www.bexley.gov.uk and takes parents through the process, providing links to useful information to help them apply for schools.
Free internet use is available at all of the borough's libraries. Library staff are on hand to help parents and carers fill in their admission forms. The e-admissions system runs alongside the traditional paper method of applying for school places.
Parents and carers applying for schools using the paper method can collect a Bexley Primary Common Application Form from any Bexley Primary School, including church schools, or the Contact Centre, Civic Offices, Bexleyheath Broadway. For more about the e-admissions scheme, important application dates and primary school information, visit www.bexley.gov.uk/admissions and select 'Primary Schools', or contact the admissions grants and awards team on 020 303 7777 option 6.
