Reception and Key Stage 1 appeals:
The law states that infant classes (EYFS and Key Stage 1) must be limited to a maximum of 30 children. This impacts on how an appeal is considered and an appeal for a Reception place can only be upheld in very limited circumstances.
If an appeal does not satisfy any of these conditions then it cannot be upheld in favour of the parent/carer.
We would encourage you in the first instance to discuss your case informally with the Admissions Team who will give you advice and explain the process.
Timetable for Appeals - Primary:
Your appeal will be heard at what is called a Hearing, within a time scale of 40 school days from 12th May 2024. It is likely to be heard at the end of June. A confirmed date will be shared at the beginning of June.
All other appeals known as ‘in-year’ admissions and those for Year R submitted after 12th May 2024 will be heard within 30 school working days of submitting the request.
Your appeal request should state your reasons for your request and any additional information/documentation/appendices should be submitted five days before the Hearing to allow time for it to be copied and distributed to all the interested parties. At least 10 working days before your appeal, unless you choose to waive this right, you will be sent detailed information regarding the process and also the date and names of the independent panel members who will hear the appeal.
The school is unable to guarantee that any original work/evidence/folders, submitted as part of the appeal, will be returned. Appellants may wish to submit copies in advance and then take important original documents verifying evidence to the appeal.
If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
If you have any questions about the process then please can contact the Admissions team via firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
