Admissions Service - Admission Appeals
This Service provides own admission authority schools and academies with a high quality independent appeal panel service, ensuring compliance with statutory requirements. Parents have the right of appeal against a decision to refuse admission and own admission authority schools and academies are required to set up an independent appeal panel service and act in accordance with the Admission Appeals Code and other relevant legislation. If parents consider that the process has not been carried out correctly they can complain to the Local Government Ombudsman or Secretary of State. They can also seek Judicial Review of an appeal panel’s decision.
