DD passed (I/c) and was allocated Shsg which was our first choice. With my older children, we definitely had to accept the offered place, but the email I’ve had seems to suggest that if you’re been allocated a school, you have automatically accepted the place.

Please can someone confirm for me that is correct? Do I not need to do anything?

Are you a Southend or ECC resident? The Southend booklet says:

Accepting the offer of a school
place

Offers are automatically recorded as ‘accepted’
and parents will be given 10 school days to notify
the LA if they wish to reject an offer of a school
place. Parents who applied online will be able to
do this by using the online facility.

If Essex, what does it say when you log in to view your offer? I'm fairly certain it has been assumed acceptance in recent years.

Sorry, I should have said-I’m Southend!

So I don’t need to do anything?

Well, it does say, Offers are automatically recorded as ‘accepted’ :).

Have you logged in to your account to see what the options are?

We received a pack from the school (WHSB) and have to return a formal acceptance form and fill in online personal information forms by March 15, presumably so they can get a clear idea of waiting list places.

If you accept your place at your lower preference (offered) , but are on waiting list for 1st and 2nd offer - will you be taken off the waiting list?

No.

If you turn down the lower preference place offered, you may be home educating come September.
