We’ve now completed the first waiting list process to reallocate reception class places that have become available since offer day on 15 April. We have emailed revised offers to parents who applied online, or posted letters second class to parents who applied on paper. Only a very small number of parents have received new offers.
If you have received an offer of a school place, it is essential that you contact us and confirm you accept the offer. Otherwise places may be removed and reallocated to families on the waiting lists. Phone us on 0191 278 7878 or email firstname.lastname@example.org providing your child’s name and date of birth
