More Rotherham Children Get Their Parents First Choice Primary School

There's been a rise in the amount of children in Rotherham 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.

Ian Thomas, Strategic Director of Children and Young People’s Services at Rotherham Council said: “We know this can be a worrying time of year for many parents and carers as they get to find out if their child has got into a preferred school.
“I hope today’s figures provide the reassurance that we prioritise getting the best start in life for all children and this includes ensuring they get to go to their local school wherever possible. Having a good quality education on your doorstep is key to helping children achieve their potential.”
