Hi All,
First preference for my DS was Parmiter's, although we did not get that, we got our second preference SCD. I have received a mail today from Harrow council (we are within Harrow) that Parmiter's has allocated us a place and lower preference school will now be removed. Does this mean DS has been removed from SCD, we really like SCD now and do not want him taken off. Please help!

I would call them. Generally the advice is that if you don't want the place any more you should take your DC's name ofed the waiting list as you will lose the original place if a higher preference is offers (as that place will have been offered to someone else, so no longer exists). I have no idea how immoveable this is in Herts, but I would get onto them ASAP.

Hi fiate2000!

Sure, I am not checking the site regularly thus the delayed reply, apologies!

We declined Parmiter's, after confirming from Harrow council that my sons offer from SCD will stay. Since I was in Harrow council they were asking if I want to take the new offer, only in that case I would have lost SCD. Not entirely sure that this will be true in case you are in Swhertz council.

Thanks!

Was there some reason why you did not take your ds off the Parmiter's waiting list when you decided you no longer wanted your son to go to the school?

Surely you realised the whole point of a waiting list is a ranked list of parents to call when a place comes up? DG

Hi Daogroupie,
That was my bad, I should have done that. Had a nice sit-down with wife on that too, was a great day :lol: !

Thing is we were hoping that he would get Parmiters till the second round, after that once we started communicating with SCD we really liked it. Offer came on the last day of waiting list, and by then we were not ready to shift. I should have removed him once we made our minds up, that is where I erred. Thank you for reminding me of that day :lol: !

Regards!

So what was your score and your position on the waiting list?

Hope the person who got the space had the time to get the uniform. DG
