As far as I am aware no places has been offered ooc of Redbridge.Redbridge is an oversubscribed borough.if you are considering ilford county or Woodford you have to move before 31st of oct and inform council of your change of address.Hope that Helps

Thanks for your reply. We live about 200m outside catchment for Woodford which is frustrating. We can’t afford to move & quite honestly don’t think we would anyway. There are good schools around here but just wanted to let dd have a go. We’ve decided to apply for Woodford & Chelmsford. I know there’s little or no chance but it doesn’t hurt to try. Just thought I’d ask if anyone had any experiences.

When you say you live 200m out of catchment what do you mean? It wasn't clear to me the first time I read the info on catchment that the area extends outside Redbridge borough lines. I just thought I'd check to see you also understand this and have checked against the enlarged area?

We live in Dagenham. From what I understand of the catchment boundary, it appears to run along Lodge Avenue & we live on a road that is about 200m outside the boundary. That’s assuming i’ve interpreted it correctly.

It looks like it includes both sides of Lodge Avenue, down to just above Sheppey Road?

I can’t figure out how to get a screenshot on here but I live on Markyate Road, just off neasham road so not far outside the boundary. On the map it actually looks a lot further than it is.
Oh well, it is what it is. Thanks for all your replies x
