Information about In Year offers is also available.

Offer letters

Offers were emailed to online applicants on the evening of Tuesday 18 April 2017. If you applied using a paper form an offer letter was sent by first class post on Tuesday 18 April and you should receive the letter on Wednesday 19 or Thursday 20 April.

How to respond to the offer

You must accept or decline the offer by Tuesday 2 May 2017. If you applied using a paper form the offer letter explains how to respond.

If you applied online you must respond to the offer through the eAdmissions website. You will need the username and password you used when you made your application.  If you can't remember this information, you can use the 'Forgotten your username or password?' option. 

Once you have logged in, go to the 'My school admissions' page then select 'View outcome and respond.'

Please note:

  • declining the offer means the place will be given to the next child on the waiting list in the second round - it may not be possible to offer the same school again
  • declining an offer will not advantage an application in the next round
  • accepting an offer will not disadvantage an application for higher ranked schools or at appeals.

There are two further rounds of offers as outlined in the table below. We encourage you to accept your offer and wait to see if you can be offered a higher preference in a later round.

Waiting lists

Children will be automatically added to the waiting list for any Brent schools listed as higher preferences than the school offered.

For schools outside Brent you should contact the admissions authority for each school for details about how waiting lists are managed. Applications for any schools listed as lower preferences than the offered school have been withdrawn.

View more information about waiting lists.

Are you happy with the offer?

Applicants who are happy with the offered school and no longer wish to be considered for schools they ranked higher on their application must request that their child is taken off the waiting list by emailing offer.acceptdecline@brent.gov.uk.

Children on waiting lists may be offered a higher preference school in the future and if this happens their current offer will no longer be available. If you are unsure about whether to remain on the waiting list please seek advice from Brent school admissions.

Changing your preferences and other details

You can change your preferences and other details by completing the change of circumstances form. It is important that you advise us if any details of your application have changed (e.g. your address).  If you are offered a place based on out-of-date information the offer will be withdrawn.

The deadline for changes for the second round of offers is Tuesday 2 May 2017.

Appeals

You have a right of appeal under the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 against the refusal of a place at any of the schools for which you applied. Find out more on how to appeal.

How places were offered

If you have not been offered your first preference, you will be sent a letter which outlines how your application was processed. The letter includes the criteria and distance used when ranking your applications. This information, when compared with the summary of all offers at Brent primary and junior schools, allows you to determine why you were not offered a higher preference school.

If it was not possible to offer any of the schools listed on your application then a place has been offered at the nearest school to your home that has vacancies remaining after everyone who applied on-time has been offered.
