Have you applied for a place in a Primary School?
Northamptonshire County Council say that Primary school allocations will be announced on 18 April.
Families who made applications online will be able to check their offer at www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/
Secondary School allocations have also been made and out of the 7,700 applications, 80% have been offered a place at their preferred school.
Cllr Matthew Golby, county council cabinet member for learning, skills and education, said: “This year we have been able to offer parents more choice than ever before, with two new free schools opening in Northampton in time for this September. We know that we will need to provide an additional 9,000 secondary school places in Northamptonshire over the next five years. With this ever increasing number of children requiring a school place, it is no small task for our allocations team to meet parental preference. But I am pleased that once again almost all families have been offered at place at one of their preferred secondary schools.”
Go online to the County Council’s website for more information about school placements.
The website also has information on places to go, people to see and things to do over the coming weeks, especially Easter.
