Camden Council takes very seriously any attempt to obtain a school place by fraud. All cases are investigated and the use of credit reference agencies has improved detection rates.
If you know someone who intends to or has used a false address to get a school place, you can report this confidentially to the Camden admissions team by emailing email@example.com or calling 020 7974 1625.
You do not need to give your name but please provide as much information as possible so that we can investigate the matter fully.
If we find that a school place was obtained using a false address we will withdraw
our offer, even after the child has started school, and give it to the child who was
entitled to the place. We consider every school place obtained through deception denies
another child their legitimate place.
We will not accept a temporary address if you still have a property that was previously used as a home address, nor will we accept a temporary address used solely or mainly to obtain a school place. You may be asked to supply additional information to explain why you are not able to use your permanent address.
