Appealing for a School

Those families who cannot be offered a place at a school will be told about their right of appeal and their child’s name placed on the school’s waiting list.

At the appeal hearing, the panel members are independent and have had no involvement with the process of allocating places.
The panel can either turn down your appeal or they can agree to make an extra place available for your child. To help them come to a decision, they will check how the admission authority has applied its policy.

They will listen to the reasons why there is no more room in the school and your reasons for wanting your child to attend that particular school.
