School appeals

We will write to you to explain the reasons why it was not possible to offer you a place at your preferred school and the process for appealing against this decision. More information on timescales and ways to register an appeal.

The School Appeals Team is responsible for administering the arrangements for appeals for Community Schools and ensuring that they are heard by an Independent Appeal Panel made up of people who have no connection at all with the original decision.

The responsibility for appeals for Academy, Trust and Voluntary Aided Schools rests with the individual schools. Parents who are refused places will be advised of the arrangements for making an appeal or should contact the school.
