Place Offered


If you have been offered a place in school please contact us on 01724 782460 or email on to arrange your transition.

Place not offered


If you have not been offered a place at the school you have requested, you can make a school admission appeal against the decision. Parents wishing to appeal will be sent information on how to appeal. This includes a form on which to give ‘notice of appeal’. You should set out the reasons for your appeal on this form and return it to the council by the date requested.


Appeals are heard by panels which are independent of the council, schools and governing bodies. The panel follows the School Admission Appeals Code which is drawn up by the Department for Education, with advice from the Local Government Ombudsman.


The procedure is a ‘two stage’ process:


  • In the first stage, the school has to convince the appeal panel of the reasons for the refusal of a place.
  • Where the panel determines that prejudice would occur if a further admission was allowed, then the second stage is when the parent makes their case.

The panel can then exercise its discretion in balancing the circumstances presented by the parent against the prejudice that would be caused by the admission of further pupils. The decision of the appeal panel is binding on the school and on the parent.
