Parents receive primary school place offers
19/04/2013 07:19:00

 
 

Like many of my constituents, we received an offer of a primary school place for the youngest of our three boys this week.

Croydon Council tell me that:

- everyone who applied on time received an offer;

- of the 4,725 places offered, 92 per cent were for one of parents’ three most favoured schools. This is three percentage points higher than last year;

- almost 96 per cent of offers were for a school that parents' had expressed some preference for.

It's great to see that the Council is coping with the rising demand for school places (I have been working hard to ensure they get sufficient funding from the Government to provide the extra places needed) and that more parents are getting a place at a school of their choice. But there are still about 190 parents that have been offered a place at a school they didn't apply to. If you are one of my constituents, find yourself in this positon and want to appeal, please get in touch.
