More Redbridge children offered their first choice primary school
Published: 17 April 2019
More children than last year have been offered a place at their parents’ first choice primary school in Redbridge.
Pan London Admissions Board data shows that 3273 children got into their top choice in 2019 compared with 3255 in 2018.
Some 95.42 per cent of children received one of their parents’ top three choices and 97.24 per cent have gained a place at one of their chosen primary schools.
All those not given a school of their preference have been offered alternatives places in Redbridge schools.
Caroline Cutts, Operational Director for Children and Families, said: “In the face of higher demand, we’re delighted to be able to offer even more families their first preference school. Beginning school is an exciting time and we wish all children the very best when they start in September and for the coming years.”
All parents are encouraged to look at the options open to them as alternative places can become available if families change their mind or move home.
Parents must respond to the offer they have received by 30 April 2019.
