|Title:||99% Local Children Offered Place At Preferred Secondary School|
|ID & Publication:||20130311011 ~ The-Villager.co.uk |
Virtually all children in Doncaster have been offered a place at one of their preferred secondary schools. It comes after National Announcement day – when local authorities across the country tell parents/guardians and the Department for Education the outcomes of the 2013/14 school admissions process.
99 per cent of children across Doncaster have been offered a place at one of their three preferred schools, maintaining the level from last year. 96 per cent have received a place at their first preferred school.
Out of almost three thousand applications just 33 children did not receive one of their preferred schools. All of these children have been offered a place at their local school. Parents who have been refused places have been offered the right to an independent appeal. The council is also happy to work with families to identify where alternative places are available.
Councillor Eric Tatton-Kelly, Doncaster Council portfolio holder for children and young people, said: ‘These statistics show our ongoing commitment in trying to ensure as many children as possible start the next academic year at one of their preferred schools.’
