Parents across Nottinghamshire have received offers for their children to start primary school in September 2016 - but some may want to appeal their secured places.

Nottinghamshire County Council wrote to 9,275 parents to let them know which school their son or daughter is to attend from September.

And more than nine out of ten parents have secured a place at their preferred school.

However, 2.2 per cent of people across the county have been offered a place at a school they didn’t request on their application, meaning some people may want to appeal the decision.

A council spokesman said: “Parents have a right to appeal about their child’s school place and all appeals are wholly independent.”

The deadline for appeals is Tuesday, May 17.
