PARENTS across Barnsley will find out if their child has gained a place at their desired primary school today.
Barnsley Council has issued guidance to those who have any questions about the whole process.
A statement read: "We’ll get in touch with you on April 16 to tell you the name of the school at which we can offer your child a place.
"If you applied online, we’ll email you. If you submitted a paper application, we’ll write to you.
"If a place is available at your first preference school, we’ll offer your child a place there. If there are only places available at your second or third preference schools, we’ll offer your child a place at one of these schools, but place your child’s name on the waiting lists of any schools you’ve ranked higher.
"If places are available at more than one of the schools your prefer, we’ll offer your child a place at the school you’ve ranked highest on your form.
"If places aren’t available at any of the schools you prefer, we’ll offer your child a place at the school nearest your address that has places available.
"If you don’t want to accept the place we offer, you must tell school admissions in writing within 10 working days of receiving your offer."
