Increase in Lincolnshire pupils given first choice of primary school

Increase in Lincolnshire pupils given first choice of primary school”

Kent County Council says 15,426 families were offered their first preference school, which accounts for nearly 90% of all applications.A total of 16,843 families were offered one of their three preferences.

Over 7,000 children (95.02%) will start at their first preference school in September, which is an increase on last year's 94.30% despite a larger group size of around 200 children.

New post primary schools for Enfield and the Laytown/Drogheda area and a new primary school for Dunshaughlin were announced by Education Minister Richard Bruton today as part of the Department's plan to establish 42 new schools over the next four years.

In a statement, Cllr Ray Gooding, Cabinet Member for Education at ECC said he was delighted preferred places have been offered to the vast majority of children, adding: "The achievement is testimony to our strong track record of investing in new school places, as well as the hard work of admissions staff, schools and those involved in planning expansions". They will be offered alternative schools - any parents wanting to appeal against the decision can do so on the website. These parents can also log in after 5pm to view the offer online.

Notification emails and letters are being sent out to mums and dads everywhere.

A total of 68 (0.89%) children will be offered a local school that isn't one of their preferences. This is a direct result of measures taken by the council to manage capacity in line with demand.

Appeals should be lodged within 20 school days of receiving the written refusal.

KCC will reallocate places from schools' waiting lists, sending out a second round of offers on Friday, June 15.

For more information on how to join a waiting list and/or appeal go to: www.kent.gov.uk/primaryadmissions or phone the admissions team on 0300 412121.
