This year 94 per cent of parents or carers of primary age children secured their first school preference in North Yorkshire. The figure is very slightly lower than last year’s 94.6 per cent but a higher figure than most other places in the country.
All children have received the offer of a place out of 5,909 applying, a lower cohort than last year’s 6,504.
County Councillor Arthur Barker, North Yorkshire’s Executive Member for Schools said: We are very pleased that so many of our families have once again been able to gain their first preference from their choice of schools.
We wish all the children starting primary school in September all the best and hope they will enjoy their education in North Yorkshire schools.
