Merton offers every child a primary school place

A primary school place has been offered to every parent in Merton with a child starting school in September.

  • 80.8% of children were offered a place at their parents’ first choice of school, an increase from 80.4% last year
  • 90.9% of children got into one of their top three schools, up from 90.1% last year
