What happens next

You don't need to confirm the place with us. However, the school or academy may contact you to confirm the place, please respond if they contact you direct.

If the offer is not one of your preferred schools or academies this is because other applicants had higher priority within the determined admission arrangements.

You can appeal the decision or add your child's name to waiting lists for other schools.

The situation will change for many families as the reserve list and appeal processes roll forward.

If you have made alternative arrangements for your child's education please contact the area education office by letter or email as soon as possible. This will allow any places which become available to be offered to other families who are on reserve lists.

If you need any further information or advice please contact your area education office.

Help with school costs

Once you know which school your child will go to, you can check whether they will be eligible for free school meals or free travel to school.
