Dear Veronica Finn,

Thanks for your email. Apologies I didn't clarify my FoI request initially. I have now specified the questions 1a and 2a as I'm looking to find out the number of available school places for Y7 and Reception only rather than across all age groups. Please see the updated questions below.

1.a How many Reception school places are available in your local
authority area?

1.b For how many children have applications been made for entry to
year R (Reception) in 2016?

2.a How many secondary Y7 school places are available in your local
authority area?

2.b For how many children have applications been made for entry to
year 7 in 2016?

Look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,
Elina
