Admission to Primary school in September 2017
National Offer Day – Tuesday 18 April
The outcome of your primary school applications will be available during the evening of 18 April 2017. You should log in to your account on the www.eadmissions.org.uk website for the official notification of your school offer; no offer letters will be sent by post.
First Preference Offers
Offers which could have been made for any lower choice school have been automatically withdrawn.
Second to Sixth Preference Offers
If you receive an offer for a place at a school which was listed as a lower choice, it means that the higher choice schools received more applications than places available and other children had higher priority for the places. Find out more on how places were allocated (PDF).
Your child’s name has been placed on the waiting list(s) for the school(s) you prefer. Further information about waiting lists can be found further down this page.
Offers that could have been made at schools that were placed as lower preference to the school that has been offered have been automatically withdrawn.
Alternative Offers (Allocation of a place at a school that was not chosen)
If you do not receive an offer for a place at a selected school, it means that the school received more applications than place available and other children had higher priority for the places. Find out more on how places were allocated (PDF).
The alternative school you have been offered is usually the closest school with a vacancy. Your child’s name has been placed on the waiting list(s) of your preferred school(s). Further information about waiting lists can be found further down this page.
Accepting an alternative offer will not prejudice your chance of getting a place at a school of your choice should a place become available for your child at a later date.
Accepting / declining school offers
Please respond by logging on to your application at www.eadmissions.org.uk Go to your 'My school admissions' page and then click on ‘View outcome and respond’ and submit your acceptance. You will then receive a confirmation email.
Accepting a place at school that is not the one you would most prefer will not affect your chances of being offered one of your top choice schools at a later date.
The deadline for accepting the school place you have been offered is 2 May 2017; offers will be withdrawn after this date if response is received.
A small number of parents may decide not to accept the primary school place that has been offered to their child and these places will then be offered to other children from the waiting lists in the second round of offers.
Your child’s name will automatically be placed on the waiting lists for any Barnet school which was a higher preference on your application form than the school you have been offered.
The second round of offers is scheduled to take place in the week ending 26 May.
Appealing for a place at your preferred school(s)
You have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel against the decision not to offer your child a place at a school of your preference.
Appeals will not be heard until all the available places at the school have been offered and accepted and as no places are reserved for successful appeals, this means that any appeals allowed will increase the intake above the admission limit.
If you have not already applied for a primary school place for your child, you must submit an online application at www.eAdmissions.org.uk
Please look at the Primary School Guide for more information on the school admission application process.
