Primary School National Offer Day Top Tips

The stress and pressure that parents experience when the national offer day arrives is often overwhelming. Here are some top tips on what to do if you don't get the primary school of your choice:

1. Don't panic. Help is at hand.

2. It is important to place your child on the waiting list of your preferred school.

3. Consider lodging an appeal. Before doing so, it would be advisable to seek assistance on the merits of an appeal.

4. Consider accepting the school you have been offered so that your child is not without education.

5. Know that you can have (legal) representation (should you require it) at the appeal hearing.

All testimonials


Whilst the SENDIST appeal process requires patience and clarity, we found Match Solicitors provided a faultless service. Diligent whilst being understanding. Our son is now in the school we required and is thriving due to the support of Match Solicitors throughout the process.

Mr D Cameron, London

The service was first class and I was encouraged by the Solicitors sound knowledge of education law. Having a child with special needs is a challenge to any parent and the whole process of going to an educational tribunal can be quite daunting. Match Solicitors was able to get the job done professionally and to the highest standard and yet still retaining a very caring and human side which was very reassuring.

Mrs O Akagbosu, London

Match Solicitors would definitely be my first choice, when I need to work with solicitors, who are specialists in education Law.
