Redbridge Council encouraging online applications for school places

More than half of parents and carers in Redbridge applied for their child’s school place online last year.

It is possible to apply online from September 1 for children starting school for the first time or transferring to a secondary school in September 2013.

Redbridge Council is promoting its online service as quick and easy.

A spokesman said benefits of applying online include applications can’t get lost in the post; applicants can get text reminders about key dates and can change their details up to the closing date.

Applicants also receive an email letting them know the result of their application without having to wait for a letter to be posted.
