Appeals

In-year appeals

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.

The government has set a limit on the size of infant classes (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2), as described below.  Appeals are very rarely upheld for infant classes because of this.

2.15 Infant class size – Infant classes (those where the majority of children will reach the age of 5, 6 or 7 during the school year) must not contain more than 30 pupils with a single school teacher.  Additional children may be admitted under limited exceptional circumstances.  These children will remain an ‘excepted pupil’ for the time they are in an infant class or until the class numbers fall back to the current infant class size limit.  The excepted children are:

a)  children admitted outside the normal admissions round with statements of special educational needs or Education, Health and Care Plans specifying a school

b)  looked after children and previously looked after children admitted outside the normal admissions round

c)   children admitted, after initial allocation of places, because of a procedural error made by the admission authority or local authority in the original application process

d)  children admitted after an independent appeals panel upholds an appeal

e)  children who move into the area outside the normal admissions round for whom there is no other available school within reasonable distance

f)   children of UK service personnel admitted outside the normal admissions round

g)  children whose twin or sibling from a multiple birth is admitted otherwise than as an excepted pupil

h)  children with special educational needs who are normally taught in a special educational needs unit attached to the school, or registered at a special school, who attend some infant classes within the mainstream school

In-year appeals are heard within 30 school days of receipt of the appeal form.
