Appealing for a Reception place for September 2024

Offers of school places will be made on 16 April 2024. If your application for a school is unsuccessful, you have the right to have your case heard by an Independent Appeals Panel.

If your child is due to start Primary School in September 2024 and you wish to appeal for a Reception place for a faith school or an Academy school, you should contact the school directly for details of their process as the responsibility for their appeals rests with the individual schools.

Each school will have details of their deadlines and how to make an appeal on their websites. Read further information on the deadline dates and who to contact for all Coventry Primary schools. Make a school appeal online.

All Community Primary Schools appeals are administered by the Local Authority and will be subject to the below dates.
