How to make an appeal

You cannot go through this appeal process if:

  • you are appealing for a lower preference school if you have been offered a higher preference school. 
  • if your child has a statement of special educational needs, you will need to contact the special educational needs service on 01628 796779.
  • if your child has been permanently excluded from two or more schools for two years after the second or any subsequent exclusion.
  • If you are appealing for a school place in an infant class (years R – 2), the appeal panel can only allow a “class size” appeal in limited circumstances. 

Note: You must read the Admissions Appeals Guide before making an appeal to make sure that your case meets the criteria.
