Year R Appeals

APPEALS for Year R – Academic Year 2017/2018

If your child is due to start primary, infant or junior school in 2017 you can appeal between 18 April and 17 May 2017 to guarantee that your appeal will be heard by 19 July 2017.  For applications made in the normal admission round, appeals must be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals.  For late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 schools days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 schools days of the appeals being lodged.

18th April 2017 - The offer of a place in a School will be given.

17th May 2017 – This is the date by which an appeal for Year R for September 2017 must be submitted if you do not want a place in the School you have been allocated. Your appeal should state your reasons for this request. Additional information may be submitted later and full information regarding your appeal will be sent to you once the School receives your initial request in writing.

You are asked to note that if the appeal is for Year R (or any other year in KS1) that the School is bound by infant class legislation. This means that it is against the Law to have more than 30 children in any one class and this number has been allocated according to the School’s over-subscription criteria. Consequently, there are only limited conditions under which an appeal may be upheld. Very, very few appeals, if any, are successful for Years R/1 and 2 in this School because it cannot break the Law and have more than 30 children in any one class. For the last few years no appeals have been successful at this School.

If you have any queries regarding an appeal, then you are asked to contact the School.
