Appeals for Year 7

Before deciding to appeal

Please consider the following carefully:

  • Do you have compelling reasons why your child should attend the school(s) you applied for and were refused at?
  • Would your child be particularly disadvantaged by not attending the school(s) you applied for and were refused at?
  • Any there exceptional circumstances which would prevent your child from attending the school they have been offered?
  • Has a mistake been made which meant your child wasn’t offered a place at a school you applied for?
  • Do you have any evidence to support your appeal, eg hospital or doctor’s documents?
  • Look at the statistics below for the number of appeals that were successful in previous years
  • If your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) you must contact the Special Educational Needs Assessment and Review Service on 0121 303 1888
