Emergency regulations were made in April 2020 because of the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on school appeals. These regulations will be in place until 30 September 2021. Appeals cannot be held face to face until the government guidelines on social distancing say so and it is considered practicable to do so.
These appeals are for children transferring between schools mid-year. You can make a formal appeal to an independent appeal panel, for any school that you have applied for where admission has been refused. This is a legal process and places are not ‘reserved’ for appeal panels to offer.
In-year appeals are heard within 30 school days of receipt of the appeal form.
