Offer of a primary school place
Southwark Council no longer sends offer letters by post. Instead, you'll receive an email from eAdmissions after 5pm on 19 April 2022 which will confirm your child’s offer of a primary school place and provide information on what to do next. If you do not receive this email, check your junk mail folder. If you have still not received the email by 20 April, contact Southwark Council’s school admissions team by email.
You'll also be able to find out the outcome of your application by logging into the eAdmissions website using your unique user name and password during the evening of 19 April 2022.
Application results won't be provided over the telephone.
Please note that the offer of a school place is conditional until proof of address has been confirmed by the school. Original copies of the following will be required:
- child benefit documentation, or if you're no longer eligible to receive child benefit you'll need a letter from the HMRC confirming you were previously in receipt of child benefit
- Council Tax bill
- one other proof of address (TV licence, bank statement, credit/store card statement)
If the council or an admission authority has reason to suspect that a family doesn't live at the address stated on the application, we'll carry out an investigation. If we discover that a parent is making a fraudulent claim, the offer of a place will be withdrawn.
Respond to your offer of a school place
Your child’s offer will be automatically accepted if you're a Southwark resident and his/her details will be forwarded to the allocated school after 4 May 2022.
This offer of a school place will remain available unless you notify us of any other suitable alternative arrangement for education that has been made for your child. You must notify the school admissions team by email and include your unique application reference number by 4 May 2022 so that another child may be offered the place.
