Just over two per cent of Lancashire’s won’t be starting their educaiton at a school of their choice in September.
Figures released after offers for primary places went out this week show that nearly 90 per cent of children will get their first preference and nearly wight per cent will go to schools which were their second or third preference.
The remaining have been allocated places at other schools.
The number of children receiving preferred places is likely to rise as appeals are heard and adjustments are made. A total of 13,656 children have received primary school place offers this year.
