Primary School Admissions Southport April 17th, 2013 admin Latest News Shares Comments Primary School Admissions Southport 91% of Sefton residents that applied for a primary school place in the borough have been offered their first choice. Letters and e-mails were sent on national offer day (April 16), informing parents/carers about the offer of a school place for their child for September, 2013. In total there were 2,833 applications, with 91% receiving their first choice while 98% were given at least one of their three choices. These figures mirror last year’s percentages. Cllr Ian Moncur, Cabinet Member Children, Schools, Families and Leisure, said: “Starting primary school is a huge step in a child’s life and is the beginning of many years within the education system. “Like last year our figures are consistently high with more than 91% of pupils being placed in their first choice of primary school. “National figures show many of our schools are some of the best in the region and it is always very pleasing so many pupils have got their first choice of school. Thanks must go to our Admissions Team who have supported many families during this process. “As ever a small number of pupils will have missed out, and any applicant who is unhappy about their primary school allocation still has a right to appeal.” Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
