After you get your school offer

2. What to do when you get your offer

How to accept your offer  

Your school should contact you within 10 days of your offer.  

If you don’t hear from them in 10 days, please contact them directly.

What if you don’t want the school you’re offered? 

First, we recommend you accept the school place in your decision letter, even if it’s not your first preference. 

Accepting your school place ensures your child has a school to go to.  

Accepting won’t stop you: 

  • appealing 
  • going on a waiting list for a different school 

If you turn down the place at your allocated school this may be given away to another child and we may not offer this again if you change your mind. We have no duty to offer  another school. This may result in your child being without a school place in September.
