Ninety two per cent of four to five-year-olds received offers for their first choice primary school in Suffolk, council bosses have revealed.
Suffolk County Council received 7,632 applications from parents outlining the schools where they would prefer their child to be educated.
For junior schools , 99 per cent secured their first choice with 97 per cent getting their top preferred middle school. Two per cent of pupils were offered a primary place not on their application form.
Sue Cook, director for children and young people, said starting school or progressing to another is an ‘importnat moment’ so the more that can be done ‘to make the transition right, the better’.
