Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 1:19pm 16th April 2018.

This year, nearly 95% of parents or carers of primary age children secured their first school preference in North Yorkshire. 

The figure remains consistently high in comparison with many other places in the country.

As many as 98% of families in the county secured one of their top three preferences.

Stuart Carlton, North Yorkshire County Council’s Corporate Director of Children and Young People’s Services said:

“This is very good news for North Yorkshire families

We are pleased that so many families continue to gain the first preference from their choice of schools and that the percentage remains consistently high.

“However, as a local authority we work hard with all North Yorkshire schools to ensure they deliver the highest standards of education so that families who are not given first preferences can still send their children to good schools.

We wish all children starting primary school in September all the best and hope they really enjoy the top quality teaching and learning our schools provide.”
