    ESF application

    Just wondering whether I can use the address of the flat we rent out as our home address so that we can be allocated to the ESF school that we want, rather then our home address?

    I think quite a few people do this.

    But does that make it legal/ethical? And what lesson are you teaching the kid?

    You read about people doing this in the US every once in awhile. The reason it is in the news is that they got caught and their kid was tossed from the school.

    Never mind, I was too uncomfortable about it anyway and applied to the school for our zone. The logistic would have been a nightmare. Also you are right, it would have meant telling my child to kepp up the "white lie" as well. What about later when she has friends over and what about organising the school bus etc etc

    Okay. But I am not sure how many degrees there are of lying for personal gain. Once you cross the line, might as well go all out.
    And locals are hardly the upstanding obeyers of simple rules. Plus I am willing to bet nobody really enforces it at the local level. Sort of on par with many other things around here.
    But the OP did the right thing and now can sleep at night.
