If your child is not offered a place at your preferred school, you have a right to appeal against that decision to an Independent Appeals Panel.
Impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on school admission appeals
The government has issued new legislation and regulations around how school admission appeals should be conducted.
In line with continued social distancing measures, the regulations disapply the requirement that appeals panels must be held in person and instead give flexibility for panel hearings to take place either by video conference, telephone or through a paper-based appeal where all parties can make representations in writing.
The regulations also stipulate that appeals cannot be delayed or postponed until they can be heard face-to-face. As a result, St Helens' Independent Appeals Panels Service will be conducting appeals via video conferencing facilities.
Parents who have already submitted an appeal will be contacted with more details by the Clerk to the Independent Appeals Panel.
If you require an appeal form, please email email@example.com or phone 01744 671027.
