My Colleague Viv Buckland who leads the Admissions Team here in Leeds sent me this e-mail...

"Hi Chris, just to let you know we have a new statutory duty to send preference data for secondary to the DCSF on March 1st. We have avoided using this data before as it is our worst picture and usually publish, as other Authorities do, data after the appeals and waiting list. Anyway the good news is 86.2% of Leeds parents were given their first preference and 98.2% of Leeds parents were given one of their three preferences. Best wishes.Viv."

Viv and the team have done a brilliant job managing 16000 admissions to primary and secoindary schools for the coming September.
