Appeals procedures 2018

If you have not been offered a place at your preferred school(s) you have the right of appeal against the decision not to allocate your child a place. Accepting the place you have been offered does not affect your right of appeal. Appeals are heard by an independent panel.

The timetable for hearing admission appeals is as follows:

Appeal For Closing Date for Receipt of Your Written Appeal Your Appeal Will Be Heard By
Secondary places for children starting in September 2018 29 March 2018 15 June 2018
Change of school (application at any time other than normal intake) 20 school days after your outcome letter 30 school days after your appeal form has been received.
Appeals received after the closing date will be heard within the schedule, if possible.  However, if the form is received in late June the appeal may not be heard until after the school summer holidays. Appeals are not heard during the school holidays.

You will receive 10 school days’ notice of the time and date of the appeal hearing. This can be waived if all parties agree. We will send you a statement a week before your appeal hearing, explaining why your child has not been offered a place and why the school is unable to admit another pupil.

Any additional documentation you wish to submit in support of your appeal must be sent to the Appeal Clerk within 3 days of the appeal hearing. Failure to comply may result in your appeal hearing being adjourned.
