Ninety-five per cent of families (94.91% percent) of primary age children in North Yorkshire have secured their first choice of school for their child.

Of all families in the county who requested a primary school place for their child this September, just over 98 per cent (98.29 percent) received an offer from one of their top three preferences of school.

Corporate Director of Children and Young People’s Services, Stuart Carlton, said: “This is very good news for North Yorkshire families.

“We are pleased that so many families continue to gain the first preference from their choice of schools and that the percentage remains consistently high.

“As a local authority we work hard with all North Yorkshire schools to ensure they deliver the highest standards of education so that families who are not given first preferences can still send their children to good schools.

“We wish all children starting primary school in September all the best and hope they experience a happy and exciting start in their new schools.”
