Appeal Hearing Dates
Between 8 June and 30 July 2021

GENERAL
•    Due to the current Coronavirus Pandemic, in line with legislation, all appeals lodged before 30 September 2021 are being heard based on written information only.
•    Appeals lodged after these dates will be heard as soon as reasonably practicable.
•    You will receive at least 14 calendar days’ notice of your appeal hearing date.
•    Appeals are normally heard during the daytime on weekdays and are not normally heard during school holidays unless essential to avoid un-necessary delays.
•    Where there are a number of parents all appealing for places at the same school, the hearings may go over a number of days.
•    The school’s case will be dispatched to parents and Panel members at least 7 calendar days before the start of the appeal hearing.
•    The Panel will set a  deadline for any additional evidence to be received.
•    Following the hearing, decision letters will be sent, where possible, within 7 calendar days of the end of the hearing.  During busy periods, such as main entry, full decision letters may take longer than this, so the Clerk will send a brief decision summary letter in the interim.
•    Appeal hearings for in-year places will be heard as soon as reasonably practicable, based on written information only.

Should you wish to lodge an appeal please contact the Admissions Officer at Winton Primary School who will provide forms and guidance relating to the process.  Guidance can also be downloaded from the links below.
