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.
You will receive 10 school days' notice of the time and date of the appeal hearing.
You will receive a statement before your appeal hearing saying how your application was dealt with, why your child has not been offered a place and why the school is unable to admit another pupil.
Any extra documents you wish to send in to support your appeal must be received by the clerk at least 3 days before the appeal hearing. Failure to do this may result in your appeal hearing being adjourned.
The following schools make arrangements for their own appeals and you should contact the school for details:
If you wish to register an appeal for other authority schools, please contact them directly.
