Early analysis of local authority data suggests that, in many areas, higher proportions of children gained places at their first choice of school this year. This includes places for those starting school for the first time, transferring from infant to junior school and transferring from first to middle schools.

However, the expansion of Monks Abbey is considered by the council to be the best available solution to reduce the pressure on school spaces in the city.

Councillor Steven Dixon, executive member for families, education and children at Central Beds Council, said: "I know that this is always a nervous time of year for many families so I am delighted that so many of them have received their first-preference school".

If your child hasn't got into your preferred school, here's what you can do.

"A fist bump, a compliment, a high five - they are small gestures from a classmate that could make a big difference in a student's life when it comes to feeling connected and involved at school", said Hillsborough County Public School's Media Outreach, Tanya Arja.

Recently she and other female classmates talked to school students about women in technology.

- If you feel you have no choice but to appeal, you must remember that you can only appeal to the schools to which you previously applied.

- So you've accepted the place.

The deadline for lodging an appeal for a voluntary controlled or community school is 14 May 2018.

If your appeal is unsuccessful, you can still put your child's name on the school's waiting list.

Parents will be given details of how to appeal with their offer letter or online. While every parent has a right to appeal, make sure you have a solid reason for appealing before you start the process.

After you have sent your appeal off, the school or the council must give you at least ten school days notice before the hearing takes place.

The council has considered increasing capacity at other local schools instead of expanding Monks Abbey.

Your appeal will be heard by an independent panel, who will consider the school's case that it can not take any more children weighed against your case that your child really needs that particular school. Each school will require a separate appeal.

What happens if you lose an appeal?

Evans said they are the next generation to vote and that the decisions legislators make will "mean something to us". You can remain on the waiting list as long as you like.

School governor, Nomaan Omar said he was pleased to be part of the "historic" event, adding: "Attending Longfield as a child, I feel an enormous sense of pride for the school and the local area, which will benefit from these trees for years to come".

What if you're offered no place at all?

For the vast majority, it will be a day of joy as they discover their child is off to their preferred choice of school. Mrs Panesar told the children that planting trees provided much needed sanctuaries for birds and other creatures in those in instances.

More details on the appeal process can be found at the West Sussex County Council website.
