Secondary school wait over for parents in Lichfield and Burntwood

Parents across Lichfield and Burntwood are finding out if their children have got into the secondary school they want.

And Staffordshire County Councillor Veronica Downes believes many parents will have “very good reason to be pleased” after 95 per cent of children were allocated their first choice school in the county.

Letters and emails have started going out to parents today (March 1) outlining which school place their children have been allocated.

The County Council also revealed that 98 per cent of pupils had been given one of their top three preferred schools.

Councillor Veronica Downes, Cabinet Member for Schools, said:

“A huge percentage of parents in Staffordshire have got their first preference. 95 per cent is a really high figure and a large number of parents now have very good reason to be pleased with the outcome of the school admissions process.”

Letters to parents regarding applications for primary school places will be sent out on March 31.
