If your name isn't on the list you aren't coming in!

If you child does not have an EHCP, an important date is upon the horizon.

Local Authorities across the country will be sending confirmation/refusal letters for;

  • Secondary schools on the 1st March 2019

  • Primary schools on the 16th April 2019

If either of these dates apply to you as a parent, put these in your diary now!

If you receive this letter and it’s a refusal for your child to be admitted to your chosen school, it will tell you how to make an appeal against this decision and the deadline by which you need to do this. This appeal must be in writing!

If you applied for more than one school, you will be required to appeal against each rejection individually. You can only appeal once against each rejection.

If you are considering an appeal, the ‘School Admissions Code’ and ‘School Admission Appeals Code’ is a useful resource particularly Section 3. It can be found at;


If you receive your refusal letter and are in doubt about whether you have grounds for an Appeal, give our friendly team a call on 01284 723952 and we will book you into a free courtesy call to discuss your prospects of success.
