Many parents throughout Cheshire West and Chester will be waking up this morning with only one thing on their mind - has their child secured a place at their chosen primary school?

Cheshire West and Chester Council has already tweeted this morning advising parents to visit https://schooladmissions.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/ENROL/Website/default.aspx?utm_medium=SocialSignIn&utm_source=Twitter

They will be able to log on to find out what school their child will be going to in September.

The page also advises: "An email will also be sent later in the day to confirm. Please read your email carefully as it will contain important information on how to proceed. You will be required to respond to your offer by 5 May 2016. Failure to do so may result in the offer being withdrawn. You will be able to respond to your offer online."

Last year, more than 90% of parents of children due to start primary school in Cheshire West and Chester Council secured a place at their chosen school.

According to a council spokesperson, 92% were offered a place at their first choice of school, 5% at their second choice and 1% at their third choice. The remaining 2% were not successful in securing a place at any of their preferred schools but have been allocated a place at the next available school in their area.

Right to appeal

If you have been unsuccessful in your application you have a legal right to appeal.

You cannot appeal unless you have made an application for a school place and have been notified in writing of the reason why your child could not be admitted into the relevant year group.

You may appeal for each school at which a place has been refused and this must be in writing. Each appeal will be considered at separate hearings and you will need to complete a separate appeal form for each school and each child.

In 2014, 61 appeals were heard for places in Cheshire West and Chester schools, of which only 3% were successful.
