How can you appeal?

If you're not happy with the school place you are given, you can appeal against the decision by contacting the area education office (admissions department) for help.

They can tell you which schools have places available, add your child's name to waiting lists for other schools, and provide information to help you appeal.

The deadline to request an appeal or a place on a reserve (waiting) list(s) is March 10, and parents will be issued appeal forms the week commencing March 13.

The appeal deadline for community and voluntary controlled schools is March 24, and appeals submitted by the deadline will be heard by an independent appeal panel on June 23.

For voluntary aided, foundation, free and academy schools, check with the school directly for their deadline date.

What happens if you miss the appeal deadline?

Appeals received after the deadline will be slotted into the schedule where possible. The council cannot guarantee this however, and late appeals may have to be heard after the agreed date at a second round of hearings. The schedule is subject to change depending upon the availability of appeal panel members, venue, etc.
