Posted onPosted on 23rd Apr

A total of 93% of Nottinghamshire children have been offered their parents’ first preference school for a reception place this September – 8,105 students out of a total of 8,681 who applied on time for a school place.

Those who are happy with the place they have been offered should accept the offer and the school will then be in touch with them.

Parents who are unhappy with the place offered should view the information on Nottinghamshire County Council’s website regarding the options available to them, including information about how to appeal.

Nottinghamshire County Council’s service director for children, families and cultural services, Marion Clay, said: “We are pleased that the number of Nottinghamshire residents securing a place at their first preference school is above 93%, and nearly 99% of residents living across the county have been offered one of their four preferred schools.

“This is positive news for parents across the county who are receiving their school place offers.”
