We are possibly moving to Essex, and Redbridge in particular. I was looking into GS school admissions there (what a nightmare - 850+ applicants for 120 places at Ilford County!) when I came across a very strange statement in the secondary admissions brochure:
If you are also - or only - considering private or independent schooling for your child please inform us of the school(s) you are applying for on your CAF, this would not affect your application in any way but would help the Admissions team during the allocation process.
Does anyone know why they ask for this information or what they do with it?
I've read a lot of admissions information, with this being our second possible house move in a couple of years, but I've never seen anything like this before.
