Families across Wandsworth will find out if their children have got a place at their chosen primary school today.

Last year a report revealed the demand for primary schools places is far outstripping the number available in Wandsworth.

Three new schools were opened last year as well as 25 new reception classes over the last three years in an attempt to deal with the spiralling population increase.

This year will see the first co-ordinated allocation of primary school places across England, with emails and letters being sent out with details of where children will be starting school in September.

The Department for Education has published "scorecards" this week showing how local authorities were meeting this rising demand.

By summer 2013, it shows councils had firm plans for an extra 300,000 places - with a further 57,000 needed to meet the expected demand in autumn 2015.

It shows that the numbers in primary school rose from 3.9m in 2012 to more than 4.01m in 2013.
