GENERAL

  • In line with the Covid-19 legislation, all appeals lodged before 30 September 2022 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 heard during the daytime on weekdays and are not heard during school holidays.
  • Where there are multiple appeals for places at the same school, the hearings may go over a number of days.
  • The school’s case will be made available 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 email in the interim.
  • Appeal hearings for in-year places will be heard as soon as reasonably practicable, based on written information only.
