School appeals

If your child has not been offered a place at one of your preferred schools listed on your application form, you have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel.

You can only make one appeal per school, in a single academic year, unless there are changed circumstances.

There is no appeal for nursery, as this is not statutory education.
