Worcestershire Children First Logo Published Thursday, 16th April 2020

Parents across Worcestershire will find out today which primary or first school their children will be attending from September.

Every child, for whom an application was submitted to the Worcestershire County Council, has been offered a school place.

This year saw the County Council received 6,186 applications, 83 more than in 2019.

9 in every 10 pupils in the county will be attending their first-choice primary or first school.

In addition, there were 2,509 applications received for children who will be attending middle schools this autumn.

There are no children, that have made an application, without an offer of a middle school place with every child allocated a place at one of their preferred schools.

Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Education and Skills at Worcestershire County Council, Councillor Marcus Hart said: “I am grateful for the efforts of our admissions staff who have worked hard to ensure every application received has been allocated a place during this COVID-19 pandemic.

“Starting school is a major milestone in a child’s life and it’s great news that so many children will be starting school this year in one of their preferred schools.” 

Over the last few years, Worcestershire County Council has been promoting applying online via the County Council's website. 

This year, 98% of all Worcestershire applications were made online.
