You remain on the waiting list for all schools above
your allocated school on your CAF form. The schools below your name is withdrawn. That's how I understood it.
Quotes from herfordshire. Does this apply here too?
Waiting list offers at selective schools are dealt with by the schools not by the local authorities. So it is still possible to hold on to more than one place for a short period of time. The central control is no longer there after 1st March.
Also waiting list positions are decided and communicated to parents before parents communicate to the local authority whether they are interested in remaining on the lists of higher ranked schools. I understand initial waiting lists include all children who have not been offered a place at the school on allocations day. Later when the local authority communicates parental responses to the school, those children not interested in a potential offer are removed from the list. I suppose this is why schools can move down the lists so rapidly.
My child was offered a place at QE (our 3rd choice) on allocations day in March but was on the waiting list at our first choice. We now have a place at our first choice, we were in receipt of two offers at one time (in the middle of April) so I suppose this would be an example
