As today (Tuesday) marks Primary School Offer Day, we thought parents might find it handy to know how their school of choice rates.

Ordinarily, parents and guardians would have been sent an email yesterday but due to the Easter bank holiday, parents will be receiving them today.

Not everyone will get the first choice, so here we’ve listed schools in order of their Ofsted rating – either 'outstanding', 'good', 'requires improvement' or 'inadequate’.
