Parents and carers will learn tonight if their child has won a place at the primary school of their choice.
Allocation emails will be sent after 6pm tonight to all parents who have confirmed their email address.
The online allocation system will be available for other online applicants only after all emails have been dispatched. Hertfordshire County Council’s admissions team has processed in excess of 18,300 applications. The number of children applying for a place in a Hertfordshire primary school has risen by 595 this year – a total of 15,454 applications for reception places were received. Despite this significant increase, 14,042 Hertfordshire children have been allocated a ranked primary school. Similarly, more children were allocated their first ranked school compared to last year – 12,170 in total – an increase of over 350 since last year. That means more than 94 per cent of applicants are offered a place at one of their preferred schools. by Bronwyn Bidwell
