National Offer Day for primary schools: York children allocated their Reception school place for September

City of York Council

A total of 95.8% of children who applied for a Reception place at a primary school in York this September were allocated their first choice on National Offer Day (Tuesday 16 April).

All the children who applied for a Year 3 place in a junior school were allocated their first choice.

Parents who applied online can find out where their child has been allocated a place by logging into their parent portal account today.

Parents who made written applications will receive a letter confirming their admission arrangements. Anyone who didn’t receive their first choice of school will also receive written confirmation.

Councillor Bob Webb, Executive Member for Education, Children and Young People, at City of York Council, said:

“Starting school is such an exciting milestone for children and their families and I’m pleased that the vast majority of children in York will be able to start at their first choice school in September. I know that our schools work hard to make the transition to Reception as smooth as possible and hope all the new starters enjoy this next phase of their learning journey.”

Any parent whose children may be eligible for free school meals, one of a number of benefits that come with applying for the pupil premium, should apply through their online parent portal account.
