NAHT: Coronavirus could make National Offer Day a more anxious time for families than normal

Today (Thursday 16 April), families discover whether they have got their first choice of primary school for their children.

Paul Whiteman, general secretary of school leaders’ union NAHT, which represents the majority of primary school leaders, said:

“This can be an anxious time for families. Choosing the right school and securing a place there is a huge moment in a child’s life. And of course, these feelings of anxiety will only be heightened by the confusion and uncertainty caused by Coronavirus.

“It is vital that no child going through the primary admissions process this year should be disadvantaged. For those families not getting their first choice of school, the appeals process will be going ahead, albeit virtually. This process must be as robust as ever and be made clear to parents.”
