92% of Wiltshire children have been offered their first choice primary school this September with 98% of families being offered one of their top three choices.

Parents who applied online can view the information on which school their child will attend by going to https://admissions.wiltshire.gov.uk/prefs.php

Most parents now apply for places online with almost 92% of the 5,273 applications received doing so.

Carolyn Godfrey, Wiltshire Council corporate director said: "Finding out your child's first school is an important milestone for families and I'm pleased that once again in Wiltshire so many will be attending a school of their choice this September."

All applicants have until 2 May to accept the offer they receive. The right to an independent appeal is open to anyone who has not received one of their preferred schools.

Details of how to appeal are included in the decision letter posted to all applicants. Further information is also available on our website.
