Four of five children have been offered a place at their first choice primary school in Brent today.
Figures released by London Councils show 80.38 per cent of youngsters were allocated a place at their preferred school in the borough.
Second choices places were given to 9.25 per cent, 3.35 per cent were allocated their third choices with 1.35 per cent, 0.06 per cent and 0.36 per cent given fourth, five and sixth choices respectively.
Parents of the 4.7 per cent of children who have not been allocated a place at any of their chosen schools will have either been offered an alternative or will shortly be advised of their options.
Parents who are dissatisfied with the allocations process can appeal to an independent panel. Are you a parent in Brent whose child has not been allocated at any of your chosen schools?
