The wait is almost over for parents to hear what primary school place their child has been offered for September.

Anyone who applied online can log on to their account from 5pm next Wednesday.

All offers will be going out from Croydon Council by first class post so families should receive them by next Thursday or Saturday.

But if there is any delay in the post due to the Easter holidays then the letter might not arrive until April 22.

The council’s cabinet member for children, families and learning Councillor Tim Pollard said: “I’m delighted to be able to say that, thanks to our extensive school building and expansion programme, every Croydon child whose parents applied on time will be receiving an offer of a place.

“We know not everyone will get their first choice of school, which is always regrettable, however those parents who took our advice and used all six of their choices should generally be pleased with the outcome.”
