If it hasn't been possible to offer your child a place at your preferred school, you have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel. Read this step-by-step guide to help you in the appeal process.
An appeal form can be requested from the council, or the school if they organise their own appeals. For advice, please contact the admissions team in the first instance.
For independent advice about appeals or other education matters, visit Child Law Advice Service or call their advice line on 0300 330 5485.
