So stressed. Everyone's found out about their primary school place except us!
No email has been received. Does anyone know what will happen if they have somehow forgotten to deal with our application? It was all submitted correctly and well in good time.

In our area it's not till Monday. Are you sure of the date - check your local council website to be sure.

Did you get confirmation of receipt?

Are you in London OP? It's 5pm Monday for London boroughs (and others, I'm sure).

If you did an online eadmissions application then log in and check the status!

Yes-got confirmation email of my application way back in nov. Just rechecked it!
All the mums I know have got this email except me. Stressed.

Offers will be sent out on Monday here too. Are you sure you've got the date right?

Snowflakes1122 Fri 15-Apr-16 20:51:42

In Wales. It was meant to be Monday when we found out, but everyone's had an email confirming school place that I know. Apart from us!

TimeOfGlass Fri 15-Apr-16 20:52:57

So other local parents have had e-mails?

Stupid question, but have you checked your junk mail folders just in case?

Snowflakes1122 Fri 15-Apr-16 20:53:14

Not sure why they all got the email tonight apart from us. No one I know has t been told other than us. This makes me think they forgot our application. What a terrible thought!

Can you login to the system? So where you applied? Some areas will have the offer there.

RNBrie Fri 15-Apr-16 20:53:26

Have you checked your junk mail?

Just log in and check the site. There should be a link to view and respond to offer.

Snowflakes1122 Fri 15-Apr-16 20:53:38

Yes-checked junk mail a million times on refresh! Nothing.

Gizlotsmum Fri 15-Apr-16 20:53:46

Have you checked junk mail? Deleted to create some inbox space?

Snowflakes1122 Fri 15-Apr-16 20:54:03

Nothing on the log in on council site either. Just submitted

Snowflakes1122 Fri 15-Apr-16 20:55:01

I know I'm tasting prison food here, but what happens if they leave a child out and forget them? We wanted our catchment school, but it's really sought after!

TimeOfGlass Fri 15-Apr-16 20:55:05

Just log in and check the site. There should be a link to view and respond to offer.

Yes, try that ^^

If they've made an error and somehow forgotten you then you appeal and you'll be fine as it would be their error.

The emails do come out in batches so it's possible they just haven't got to you yet.

Snowflakes1122 Fri 15-Apr-16 20:57:10

No offer on the log in of council site. Just says 'submitted' with a tick next to it to indiciate I sent my application in

TimeOfGlass Fri 15-Apr-16 20:59:24

Not an expert, but my understanding is that if you've submitted the application correctly with all details correct, and a council error means your child misses out on a place that they would have otherwise been eligible for, then you've got a good chance of winning an appeal.

Have you deleted any cookies that could be taking you to a cached page ( clutching at straws for you)

Snowflakes1122 Fri 15-Apr-16 21:09:41

Still no email. Just going to hope I get a letter tomorrow. Stressed!

thenewaveragebear1983 Fri 15-Apr-16 21:12:29

I've just checked mine and it says my result will be available 16/04/16 so perhaps yours is the same and won't show til tomorrow?

NynaevesSister Sat 16-Apr-16 07:13:01

That's got to be tough when other parents have had theirs. But as it was clearly submitted then if they have made a mistake that cost you a place you would otherwise have got then it is possible it won't even go to appeal. So really don't ruin your weekend worrying about it.

Pompatrol Sat 16-Apr-16 11:09:53

I'm in the same boat. So stressful. The helpline is not open either. We're right on the edge of the catchment area too.

gallicgirl Sat 16-Apr-16 11:13:22

It's clearly submitted so don't worry.
It is unusual to have the offer early but I know friends in Lancashire who have heard too. Sounds like some council's have jumped the gun!

Maybe only schools where it's easy to place pupils have been released.
