Nine out of 10 parents offered first choice primary school

Nine out of 10 parents in Staffordshire have been offered their first choice primary school.

Figures revealed today show the majority of parents have been allocated their first choice school, with 98 per cent in total allocated one of their top three preferred schools.

A total of 9303 places have been allocated, with 8630 of those receiving their first choice primary school and 9120 getting one of their top three.

Helen Riley, Deputy Chief Executive and Director for Communities and Families said:

“Thousands of parents will be getting the good news today that they have been allocated one of their top three primary school choices.

“Our admissions team has been working hard since applications closed on 15 January to ensure all places have been allocated, and it helps that the majority of parents in the county put down three or more choices, increasing their chances of being allocated one of their preferred places.”

Parents who applied online will be receiving emails about the results from today onwards.
