The remaining balance of 21 places offered (1.2 per cent), were to parents whose preferences could not be met.  A place in the nearest primary school to their home address with available spaces was offered instead.

We currently have 16 primary schools in Herefordshire which have a waiting list and 53 which have available spaces.

As a comparison to last year (2013 reception class admissions), there were 1,878 offers made of which 92.0 per cent were first preferences and 98.8 per cent were one of three preferences.
