We had an awful time trying to move house recently and as a result, couldn't apply for anywhere because we didn't know where we were going to be living and the process took an awfully long time. We have now bought a house which is pretty much in the playground of a lovely local school (it's literally about 15 seconds from our back gate), so we're hoping they will have places, but as we were about 3 weeks late to apply in the end, after it was definitely confirmed that we would be living there, we get second round placement after all the other applicants have been catered for.

We also don't get our letter until 31st May. It's been a horrible time and I feel awful about it, but there really wasn't anything we could have done.

We are also holding our girl back a year. She was born in July. So maybe they will hold her a place for next year, even if all this year's places are taken? Does anyone know if that can happen? Even if you defer, you still have to apply the year before they will actually start school, but maybe they will make an allowance for us and allow her to have a place for next year rather than holding a place from this year? Especially as we are so close.

Sorry to hijack the thread, just wondered if anyone knows anything about this?

I’m sorry I have no idea meep but wishing you the best of luck! Hope somebody has more information, I know if you call the school or the admissions department at your local council they’re incredibly helpful for advice
