Ian Jones is quoted extensively in the newspapers this week as figures are released showing that 1 in 10 primary school children were denied a place at the school preferred by their parents. 

For those who want to follow the media discussion, the story is taken up by the Daily Telegraph, the Daily Mail, the Independent and the Guardian newspapers.

School appeals are likely to feature further in the news over the next few weeks, with more school appeal statistics due out on Thursday and with a forthcoming High Court ruling on the powers of appeal panels.
