Croydon parents and carers have found out which primary school their child has been allocated to for this September.

4,478 applications were received this year and 86.8 per cent of children in Croydon have been offered a place at their first-choice primary school.

Parents and carers must accept or decline their offer of a primary school place by Tuesday, April 30.

For details on how to accept a school place, or how to appeal, and schools that have remaining places, see the council website.

Executive Mayor of Croydon, Jason Perry, said: “We’re delighted that everyone who applied on time has been offered a place for their child and the overwhelming majority have been offered a place at their first choice.

“We want Croydon to be a place where our children and young people can reach their potential and our schools are well placed to help them towards achieving this.”
