School admission appeals

Coronavirus: school appeals

In line with DfE guidance, immediate entry appeals should be heard within 30 school days of being lodged and September entry appeals should be heard according to the published timetable. These timescales are being met the majority of the time, but your appeal may be heard slightly outside this deadline due to the current restrictions. As a result of Covid-19, appeals are being heard using audio conference calls or on paper.

Other deadlines may vary as this is being looked at on a case by case basis. Details will be sent to you with information regarding when and how your appeal will be heard.
