Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Allocating the activities is a real juggle. Nearly all pupils get their first choice although some activities (such as guitar and piano) are often well over-subscribed. In these cases I allocate places on a 'first come first served' basis, there's certainly no bias towards juniors. When pupils or parents point out to me that they never get their first choice I'm happy to try and give them a preference next time round. I know its not a perfect system, but I've tried to develop it in a way that is quick to process. Arts and Crafts rotates on a half-termly basis e.g. this half-term it's for infants, next half-term it'll be for juniors. Rambling sometimes operates in this way too. I hope this clears things up a little. If you'd like to know more I'm happy to explain the exact process in further detail.

my son never seems to get his first choice. Do infants get put in rambling & arts and crafts if the other options are full. Do juniors get allocated their preferences first. How does this work.
