Parents and carers will then be contacted with the result to their application on National Offer Day, which is April 16, 2024.

Councillor John Howson, Oxfordshire County Council cabinet member for children, education and young people’s services said: “Please use the opportunity to name four schools.

"This will not make it less likely that your first preference will be offered.

"However, it does reduce the risk of all preferences being unsuccessful and your child being allocated a place at a school that is not named on their list."
