Advice for Parents on School Admissions and Appeals

Right of Appeal
If you have not been offered a place at a school of your preference, you are entitled to appeal against that decision to an Independent Appeal Panel.  This panel is completely independent of the Local Authority and all schools in Hackney.  The appeals are held at in Hackney.

You should include any evidence or supporting material with your appeal form and you MUST give the grounds for your appeal at the time you lodge your appeal form.  Your appeal form will not be accepted unless you state the grounds for your appeal.  You may appeal for more than one school.

If you have made an application for a school place during the school year (In Year application). You will be sent a letter to let you know the outcome, this will tell you about your right of appeal for any school where a place has not been offered.
