Coronavirus Update – Admissions Appeals

We have been monitoring Government guidance about how to manage the impact of the Coronavirus (Covid19) outbreak. Unfortunately, following the recent announcement by the Prime Minister it has been necessary for us to temporarily suspend Appeal Panel Hearings.

 As you will be aware schools are currently closed.  In addition, Independent Appeal Panel members are unpaid, trained volunteers.  This unfortunately means that there will now be unavoidable delays to progressing and hearing appeals this year due to the Coronavirus outbreak. If you lodge an appeal, we will contact you with a date as soon as we are able and pending advice from the Department for Education about how Appeals are to be administered in this unprecedented time and also the timescale for when they will take place.

 This information will be updated as and when Government directions are received.
