New figures show 95% of parents in North Yorkshire who applied for a primary school place for their child got their first choice. Meanwhile, just over 98% of families who applied got one of their top three choices. North Yorkshire County Council's Corporate Director of Children and Young People’s Services, Stuart Carlton, 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. “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 experience a happy and exciting start in their new schools.”
