Reasons for appeal
You must give your reasons or your case cannot be processed. (Please provide written evidence wherever possible)
  • Give full reasons for your appeal and please continue on a separate sheet if necessary
  • Attach any additional paperwork securely
Although you are entitled to present your case as you wish, Panels will be unable to support appeals if the reasons do not relate to the Government rules. You must therefore put forward one of the following arguments which are strictly applied by the appeal panel.
  • A. The admission arrangements did not comply with admissions law and the child would have been offered a place if the arrangements had complied
  • B. The admission arrangements were not correctly and impartially applied (as detailed in the Admission to Primary School Booklet) and the child would have been offered a place if they had been
  • C. The decision to refuse admission was not one which a reasonable admission authority would have made in the circumstances of the case, ie. it was illogical or perverse in the light of the admission arrangements (as detailed in the Admission to Primary School Booklet)

If you would like the Appeal Panel to see any documents in respect of your appeal, please attach documents below. Please note: if you have stated any reasons of a medical, social or welfare nature, please attach professional evidence where appropriate, e.g. a letter from a doctor.
