Appeal Process

If your child is due to start primary school in September 2022, you can appeal if you are refused a place at one of your preferred schools on National Offer Day (Tuesday 19 April 2022). The law entitles you to appeal against the decision to an Independent Appeal Panel. This panel is completely independent of the school and Local Authority. The appeals are typically held at the school.

You must submit your appeal before Tuesday 17 May 2022 for it to be considered by Tuesday 19 July 2022. Any appeals received after this time will be heard within 40 school days from the deadline, or where reasonably possible in line with updated guidance from the Department for Education.

For late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 school days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged where reasonably possible in line with updated guidance from the Department for Education

If you wish to appeal, please notify the Tenax Schools Trust (which is the Admissions Authority for the school) via [email protected] and further details will be provided or follow this link https://www.tenaxschoolstrust.co.uk/admission-to-our-schools/
