I have to do DD's primary school application for Sept 2010 entry by next Friday. Have looked at the forms and am wondering what sort of reasons people put. All the schools near us are fairly decent, and all provide pretty much the same kinds of things in terms of the curriculum, extra curricular clubs etc. DH and I have made up a shortlist based on our feelings of the school during viewings, if the children looked happy etc, so are now not sure what we should be writing in the 'reasons for your preference' boxes. Can anybody help? What did you write in yours and did it make any difference? Apologies in advance for the nosiness of this question, but we really are stuck.
In terms of which school you get into I don't think it makes the slightest difference as places are allocated dependent on distance from school/siblings etc.(whatever the admissions policy says)
I left the space blank when I applied for DS's school place, but we got asked the question again on his school details form after he'd been allocated a place - so I guess it is just for general interest on part of the school.
