WAITING LISTS CALLS - Ilford County -Woodford County

Post by arifa130 »

Hello All

The wait on this waiting list is excruciating

When the lists were published my son was Position 3 after 2 months he has moved 1 place up to position 2 - how is looking for Woodford county? What is the likely outcome?

I would any parents with prior experience to comment on their situations last year and when and how they were offered a place and from what position?

Thank you so much in advance

Hi your son will definitely get a place . Good luck. My daughter is in waiting list (between 10-15) for Woodford County and she was 1 down at the end of March .Since then no movement. Very frustrating. Does anyone know when is the induction day. Hopefully there will be some movement on June. Any parents are in waiting list for Woodford county/ Ilford county, please share your experiences.

Difficult to say anyone will definitely get a place, the list has to stop somewhere, most of the movement (or at least the offer of post allocation day places) is in the early days / March etc - that is when people make decisions about paying for independent places and review bursary / scholarship offers and pay deposits (the key bit ). Occasionally some people do hang on to the GS place to keep their options open and these may become available around induction day times when hopefully parents will finally decide

30th June (is this the same for all Redbridge schools?). ICHS has a meeting for parents the evening before.
