The procedures for appeals relating to admissions will be in accordance with all relevant legislation. If parents wish to appeal against a decision to not allocate a place, they can do so by applying to the Governing Body. An independent appeals panel, who are not connected to the school in any way, then meets to consider all appeals by parents who have been refused a place at our school and who wish to appeal against this decision. Appeals are organised by the County Councils Legal Services Section and entirely separate from the admission system. An appeals panel’s decision is binding for all parties concerned. If the appeals panel decides that we should admit a child to our school, then we will accept their decision.
