Just wonder if anybody else in Worcestershire has accepted their School place by email ?

We did on friday - but havent had any response back yet. I did state I wanted an email just as confirmation of receipt.

Not sure where to phone for confirmation ?

I got thru to the Worcestershire Hub . They confirmed they had received the email .
I asked them why they hadnt replied to it :
Them - "we dont usually send out confirmations "

Me -But in such an important matter, where if a confirmation of acceptance is not received you can lose you a place , dont you think you should acknowledge receipt with a somple email ? And I asked specifically for a receipt

Them - ' I will pass it onto the team '.

Is there no end to the total frustration this whole process takes :(

That would seem like a simple solution I agree. It's little things like that that make all the difference.
Maybe follow up your call with a letter outlining why you think they should send confirmation emails?
You're through it now. Well done!

I sent an e-mail to the school of our choice
Sent the letter of acceptance to the local LEA
sent an e-mail to the local LEA (asked for a receipt and got it from them)
Rang the local LEA that the letter of acceptance that had been posted had been received by them

Not OCD at all...... :oops:

We phoned and confirmed.
Then posted the acceptance letter to them
Then phoned again 2 days later to confirm they have the correct school accepted (got them to tell me which one I accepted as further confirmation).

Doesn't hurt to be overkill with this important matter :D
