Reception Primary school places have been offered to every Hounslow child whose parent or carer applied on time. The news comes on the day parents are receiving letters confirming their child’s place in reception class of local schools starting in September.

Councillor Tom Bruce, Cabinet Member for Education, Children and Youth Services, Hounslow Council, said: “Local parents know our primary schools are doing a brilliant job for our children, and demand for places is always very high.
“We’ve worked hard to make sure that we have enough capacity to meet this demand, and will carry on working with schools to make sure we have enough places for the future.

“Making sure every child is offered a place at a local school is a fantastic achievement and is great news for local parents.

“We are working very hard to ensure we give our children the very best start in life by offering them the opportunity to get the best start in education that they deserve.”
