Well the reason I said that was because a friend of mine who lives out of catchment is thinking of putting her girl in with their grandmother's address in bowdon. Her child attends a religious school 8 miles away.
I know this is gonna get people angry here, but I can't see why this is not feasible, a medical card is not difficult to get, hence a doctors letter. Utility bill can be supplied by the grandparents. Not everyone has a child benefit letter.
Yes, and I'm one of those people! The medical card is easy to get and will have the child's name and address on it, not the grandparents address. I hope they get found out. They want the parents names too. Unless the father shares the same first name or initials as Grandpa, they will run into trouble (they will check utility bills addressee's names).
Don't be fooled, the more people like your friend try and fraudulently get into the school, the harder the checks will get every year. These people will eventually be found out. Can you just imagine the humiliation?! If parents keep lying and cheating, they'll be doing surprise home visits next! (Hopefully).
They should fine the parents for fraud and put the money into the school fund.
