Appeals Process


If you are not allocated the school of your preference then you can appeal against the decision.

 

The appeal will be heard by an Appeal Panel which is independent and is set up in accordance with DFE School Admission Appeals Code of Practice.

 

Members of Appeals Panels will include people with experience of education, but none will have been concerned with making the original admission decision.

 

Appeals are normally heard in June and July prior to when the child is due to start school in the following September.

 

Because of the legal requirement to have a maximum of 30 pupils in infant classes, the power of Appeal Panels to allow appeals is very limited, therefore very few are successful.

 

Parents are only likely to be successful with an appeal if they can show either:

  1. That the admission of their child would not breach the infant class size limit.
  2. That a place would have been offered if the admission arrangements had complied with admissions law or had been correctly and impartially applied.
  3. That the decision not to admit their child was not one which a reasonable Admission Authority would make in the circumstances of the case.
  4. When you are advised of the outcome of your application, if you have not been offered your first preference school, you will be given information on how to obtain a form on which you can register your appeal.

 

Governors of voluntary aided and free schools and Academies have their own appeal panels and deal with appeals against their decisions on admissions to their schools. Parents should contact the school for details of the appeal arrangements and an appeal application form.
