More Wakefield Children Get Their Parents First Choice Primary School

There's been a rise in the amount of children in the Wakefield District getting into their preferred Primary school.

Over 93 per cent of youngsters have been offered a place at their parents first choice.

That's a slight increase on last year.

Beate Wagner, Wakefield Council’s Corporate Director for Children and Young People said: “All children have been allocated a place and more than 93% will be going to their parents’ first choice of school, an increase on last year.

“We work hard to meet parental preferences and have an appeals process for anyone who is not happy with their allocation. Our priority is always to make sure that we provide the best education we can for all children in the district.”
