Accepting the place
Go to the accept or decline a school place web page to accept or decline the place you've been offered.
You'll need to accept or decline by 15 March 2023.
If you are not happy with the place offered, we recommend that you accept the place and remain on the waiting list for higher preferred schools - doing so does not change your chance of gaining a place and you still have the right of appeal. Any requests for changes have to be made in writing.
If your child is not offered your first preferred school, they are automatically added to the waiting list for higher preferred Wokingham Borough schools. If we can offer a place from a waiting list, we will remove the offered place and allocate the higher preferred school - we will not contact you in advance of this.
Waiting list information is not available until after 15 March 2023.
If you haven't been offered the school you wanted, you can appeal the decision. Appeals have to be submitted by 29 March 2023.
Go to the school appeals page to find out more.
