Tuesday 16 April is National Offer Day for children who are due to start primary school in September 2019.
Ahead of this year’s National Offer Day, Rutland County Council received and processed 359 applications for September 2019 primary school admissions.
A total of 342 children (95 per cent) were offered their first choice and 16 (4 per cent) were offered their second choice. There were no third choice offers in this year’s admissions round. Just one applicant had no preference met and received an offer from an alternative school, instead.
Of the 359 applications, 358 (99.7 per cent) were offered a place at either their first or second choice school.
“We hope that parents will be happy with the offers they’ve received from schools. As with last year, we’ve seen a very high proportion of first choice offers for primary school starters and there are no children without a school place.”
Mark Andrews, Strategic Director for People at Rutland County Council
Rutland parents and carers have 14 days to confirm if they wish to accept or decline the place they have been offered for September 2019.
Details of how to respond are included in the offer email or letter. More information about school admissions is also available on our Admissions page.
