Is it true that Headteachers already know which school OUR children have been allocated and if so what could be the justification for this?

I really hate the idea that anyone knows the result before me and my DS.

Yes.

Schools, Headteachers/SMT/school scretaries know before parents. They probably know already

Next Monday morning school secretaries in particular will be inundated with phone calls from parents with a myriad of questions. The schools need to know who has been allocated places, and who hasn't, beforehand in order to administer the phonecalls/visits effectively.

The schools' admin team, of course, knew a long time ago!!

It may be true that the secondary schools know already (it wouldn't surprise me, but I don't know for certain). However, according to a (very) honest teacher, the primary schools don't get to know until the same time as the parents.

This was not the case up until about 3 years ago, when the primary head may have known a day or two in advance.

Just been talking to DS2's head and am fairly certain he hasn't heard anything. Did say DSs books are looking good though, phew.

That said, have realised I have arranged a meeting with him on Tuesday forgetting that I will be in a somewhat obsessed state of mind by that point, and he thought I looked stressed today :lol: wait till next week, then he'll recognise the tortured look of stress.

Ours knew sketchy details - ie pass / not pass on The Day back in Nov, but only by about lunchtime, not through the normal channels. Don't know about next week. Will ask the sec.

I need to clarify my previous post.

I was answering with regard to secondary heads etc. I am unaware of the situation with regard to primary schools.

Primary heads definitely do NOT know where the children have been allocated until the parents find out.
