When you say you are in priority area 1 (marked red on the the priority map), are you refering to the circle from the water tower in Rugby orthe eastern area priority area 2 (marked in purple on the priority map) eg. churchover, brinklow, bilton etc?
If it is area 1 - then my understanding is that only the first 50% of places will go to ds in this area (which equates to max 60 and includes all ds in both 1&2). If you are in the area 2 priority then the remaining 50% of places go to any additional ds who have not been taken in the first 50% and fall in the area 2 priority only.
Therefore my understanding is that if a ds ranked 100th and in area 1 they may not get a place.
I'm not saying which area you are in, just want to check that my thinking is right as I know there has been lots of confusion over this and it would be horrible if dps got a shock at allocation and missed the opportunity to apply for another school.
Am i right?
I think you are right. We are in area 1 marked red, does it make any difference if we move to area 2. Please advise!
