Parents have until March 17 to accept or reject their offer of a school place.
Anyone unhappy with their allocation can apply to go on the continuing interest list for up to three community or voluntary controlled schools - and if a place becomes available it will be offered to the child on the list who best meets the school's published admission rules.
Foundation and voluntary-aided school administer their own lists.
