I wander if anyone can help.

If you list your 3 school choices in the correct order of preference and get offered no.2, where do you stand with regard to the waiting list if you were to accept your 2nd choice?

What I mean is; once you have accepted a place do you automatically get taken off the the waiting list for your No.1 choice (if you are on it that is!)?

Thank you

I can help 8)
This happened to us.You must accept the 2nd choice and you are automatically placed on a waiting list for your 1st.The list stays in place until Sept . You are notified automatically if you get a place at your waiting list school and are given a week to decide.

Thank you for that.

I sincerely hope it doesn't happen but everyone seems to have a different point of view!

You are welcome.That really is the procedure not hearsay.The LA aim to give you the highest choice they are able to.They even publish stats borough by borough so they want to give you your higher choice if it comes up.
I hope you get your first choice anyway. 8)

Hi Rosie, I can second that info! You accept the 2nd place but that doesn't mean you've rejected the 1st school (unless you tick a box saying that you no longer wish to be on the waiting list for school no. 1).

Doesn't get any easier with only one at primary.Perhaps when they are all at Uni/work. 8) Hope all is well.
