Thanks for raising this, Colin. This GitHub issue is partly relevant: 
As of January, it was more common to add the addr:postcode tag to the 
school boundary rather than a relevant building.

I think it makes sense for both fhrs:id and addr:postcode to be on the 
same entity, whether that's the boundary or a building. In some cases 
schools might have more than one building with an fhrs:id, but it's 
possible that these would have a different postcode e.g. the different 
houses at Rugby School (http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/363617437).

The comparison tool should cope with the fhrs:id tag being on either the 
boundary or building, as long as both fhrs:id and addr:postcode tags are
on the same entity. It will suggest matches based on the centroid of the 
school boundary but will pick up existing matches on either.
