Appeals

If we do not offer a child a place at our school, it is because in doing so we would prejudice the education of other children by allowing class sizes to increase beyond our capacity. In line with infant class size regulation, we take up to 30 children per class, unless there are exceptional circumstances which must fall into the statutory criteria.

If you are not offered a place at our school, you have the right to appeal to an independent panel.

If you are not offered a place at our school, you have the right to appeal to an independent panel. An appeals panel decision is binding on all parties.

Appellants will need to contact the Local Authority within 20 days of notification that their application was unsuccessful.
