General, Investing in our schools

Reception and junior school places

Following the release of information on primary school places, for September, Surrey County Council’s Strategic Director for Children, Schools and Families Nick Wilson said:

“Despite the pressure on places following a 20% rise in birth rates over the past decade, we’re pleased that so many parents have been offered a school of their choice.

“This is largely thanks to the biggest school expansion programme ever seen in Surrey, which has created an extra 900 places for the coming academic year alone.”

Primary education in Surrey covers reception and junior levels. 

The county council has added 30 classes – enough for 900 pupils – for this September, with 25 of them for reception children.

Surrey school place figures for September 2013 – reception:

• 96% of pupils offered one of their three preferences (96% for September 2012)
• 84% offered their first preference school (83% for September 2012)
• All Surrey pupils who wanted a place got one.
