Submitting an Appeal

Your appeal should be lodged as soon as possible after receiving your refusal letter. School Admission Appeals are heard throughout the year.

The deadlines for lodging appeals for the main round of appeals to be heard in the summer appeal timetable, for entry into schools in September 2023, are as follows:

  • Secondary appeals - Monday 27 March 2023
  • Primary appeals - Monday 15 May 2023

Forms for the main round of appeals received after these dates will be accepted, but there may be some delay in the hearing of such appeals.

Please ensure that you have:

  • any supporting documentation ready to upload, eg. proof of residency, if moving house is the reason for your appeal,
  • a copy of your refusal letter,
  • supporting documentation if appealing on medical, social or welfare grounds,
  • prepared a statement outlining your reasons why you wish your child to attend your preferred school and the grounds for your appeal.

To make an appeal you will need to login or register for My Account.
