Hi SW - can't speak for Redbridge as we're in Essex. However I thought it was a fairly universal system now that people should only be offered 1 state school - it is made easy on the Essex e-mail because they indicate they are moving down our order of preference. Our e-mail simply said:
1 KEGS not allocated
2 SHSB allocated
Indicating that we hadn't made the cut off point for KEGS, but that we did for SHSB. I would assume if you have been offered a place at a school lower down your order of preference than KEGS that you haven't got a place there. Also one of the other mums on the forum said they got a letter from the KEGS headmaster this morning inviting them to an open day in July. If you haven't got one of those - that may be a further indicator.
Of course we'll all find out where they came on Tuesday when we get the letter from the CSSE.
