Nine out of ten parents in Eastwood and Kimberley and the rest of Nottinghamshire have secured a place at their first choice primary school for their children for September.
Nottinghamshire County Council contacted 8,980 parents to let them know which school their child would attend, with 91.3 per cent getting a place at their preferred school.
Of the remainder, only 206 were accepted at a school they didn’t originally choose. The county council said it had done all it could to ensure parents send their child to their preferred school.
John Slater, service director for education standards at the County Council, said: “The situation as a whole continues to be encouraging as the majority of parents will be getting a school for which they made a choice.
