Welwyn Garden City woman’s children finally get school places

TWO children, who were unable to go to school, have finally been allocated places.

TWO children, who were unable to go to school, have finally been allocated places.

Last week the WHT revealed how Sarah Razali, 29, was unable to get her children Yasmin, 9, and Fadhl, 7, into a school after the family moved into the Handside area from Norfolk last month.

But now education chiefs have relented and allocated the children places at their first choice, Applecroft.

The county council said it was “a busy time” but “officers have been working through applications as quickly and efficiently as possible”.

A spokeswoman for the county council said: “Our publicity states that the timescale from receiving an application to allocation of a school place should be within 10 school days. In the case of the Razali family this process was completed in eight school days.”

She added: “We apologise that it wasn’t possible to allocate a school place on the first day of the school term, but it must be acknowledged that it is not possible to be certain of vacancies until schools reopen in September.”
