Waiting List

If a place cannot be offered because the school’s accommodation and resources are fully committed, parents will be offered the opportunity of placing their child’s name on the waiting list. Placing a child's name on the waiting list does not guarantee that a place will become available.

Appeals

Parents / carers whose applications for places are unsuccessful may appeal to an Independent Appeal panel set up in accordance with the School Standards and Framework Act 1998. You should carefully consider the reasons given for not offering a place and look at our Admissions Policy. Appeals must be made in writing and must set out the reasons on which an appeal is made. If an applicant decides to appeal, they will be contacted by the Clerk to the Admissions Panel with the confirmation of exact date and time of their appeal hearing.

You should note an appeal can only be upheld in the following limited circumstances:

· the appeals panel finds that the admission arrangements did not comply with admissions law or had not been correctly and impartially applied, and the child would have been offered a place if the arrangements had complied or had been correctly and impartially applied; or

· it finds that the admission of additional children would not prejudice the provision of efficient education or efficient use of resources.

· it considers that the appellant’s case outweighs the prejudice to the school.
