Increase in number of Hull school pupils offered their first preference primary school

Families across the city have received their children’s primary school place allocation for September.

96% of pupils were offered their first preference of school, up from 95% the year before.

2% of pupils were offered their second preference and 1% their third preference.

This means 99% of pupils in total obtained one of their preferences, an increase on 98% the previous year.

In total, around 2,900 children applied for a place at one of Hull’s primary schools.

Pauline Turner, the Director of Children and Family Services at Hull City Council said: “I’m pleased that so many of our city’s pupils will be starting school at their primary of preference, with more pupils receiving their first choice offer this year than last year.”

All parents and carers have been sent letters on 16 April. Parents have until 3 May to reply if they do not wish to accept the place. If a parent does not accept a school place offer, they then must tell the council what arrangements they have made for their child’s education from September.
