The conduct of an Appeals Panel is governed by the DfE School Admission Appeals Code of Practice. This is a summary of current procedures:
- An appeal must be submitted in writing setting out the grounds on which it is made.
- Parents must be given the opportunity to attend and speak at the meeting.
- The appeal will be heard in private and be conducted in an informal atmosphere.
- The Appeal Panel will weigh-up the case submitted by the parent/carer against the case made by the school (which is normally that the school is full and to admit more pupils would cause prejudice).
- The Appeal Panel’s decision is binding on the Authority and the School.
If you consider that the Panel acted improperly or unreasonably in handling your case you can make a complaint to:
Academy Admission Appeal Complaints
Academies Central Unit, Education Funding Agency
8th Floor, Earlsdon Park
