OXFORDSHIRE County Council’s school admissions site has crashed just days before the deadline. 

The deadline for applications for pupils starting primary school in September closes on Wednesday, but parents have reported being unable to access the admissions website this weekend.

Anyone who clicks on the 'apply' button gets a message saying there has been a server error.

One mum tweeted: "Anyone else trying to apply for school places through Oxfordshire County Council website? Numerous families having issues accessing the site.

"Sincerely hope this won’t affect families trying to meet the application deadline.

"Please can this technological problem with your website be dealt with ASAP- many families currently trying desperately to apply for places!"

The council has not yet responded to the parent via Twitter.

Although applications opened in November, many parents will have waited until this month to visit the schools' open evenings.

Paper forms are available from County Hall and from schools.
