This is the date that the letter will be posted and not the date that you will receive it. No decisions on applications will be conveyed over the telephone.

To accept or decline your place, please complete the acceptance/decline slip that is attached to the letter and return it to the Local Authority by the required date.

Only one offer of a school place for each child can be held at any one time. This means that if you submit a new application for your child, your new preferences will automatically supersede any preferences named on your earlier application. If any of your new preferences are agreed, the place previously offered will automatically be withdrawn.
