admissions appeal

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

If a child does not gain admission to their first choice of school, their parents are entitled to lodge an appeal against this decision. Such appeals are heard by independent appeal panels whose membership must exclude all members of the local authority and the governing bodies of the schools in question. A decision made by the appeals panel is deemed to be final. The number of admissions appeals made in England annually continues to rise.
