OK, we've been offered a reception place - do I need to do anything?

been offered (third choice) reception place for DS1. Thats all the letter states. Do they assume I'm taking them up on it unless I tell them, or we don't turn up in Sept?
Or do I need to "accept" it somehow?

Stupid question.....

Cheers for any answers

In the offer letter I got, we had to contact the school direct to confirm the place. 2 years ago we had to email the admissions team iirc. It should say in your letter.

Nope, all it says is
school one - not offered
school two - not offered
school three - place offered

Please do not reply to this e-mail

The website just states that the cycle is closed, and to contact them directly if you need to make a late application?

Is it eadmissions? I had a similar email but when I went on website and logged in it showed dd's name then underneath an option to view he outcome. On this page you could reply. If not clear I would ring council tomorrow.

Congrats in getting one of your choices!

We had a similar email except at the bottom it said we would be receiving a letter from the school, it arrived the same day and in it was a few forms to complete, one being the place acceptance letter.

I would contact the school. We had to provide proof of address and confirm acceptance of the place within a relatively short timeframe IIRC.

How about phoning the school and asking?

Is it lancashire as last year we didnt have to accept places, it was just assumed unless they heard from you?

I've just got a letter! It tells me I only need to inform them if I want to appeal or reject the offer. Why couldn't they put that on the e-mail or on the website?

Wandered past yesterday - they have added chickens since I last walked past!!!
