Appeals resulting from the year of entry for admission in September 2021 will be heard by appointment.

All appellants will be sent notification of their appeal hearing at least 10 clear school days in advance of the hearing.

All appellants will be sent a copy of the school’s case a reasonable time before the date of the hearing.

If any appellant wishes to submit additional evidence which was not included with their initial appeal, they must make sure that it is received within a reasonable time prior to the hearing date (normally five working days).  Any additional evidence or information received too late may not be able to be considered at the appeal hearing.  The appeal panel must decide whether it should be considered taking into account its significance and the effect of a possible need to adjourn the hearing.

In-year appeals
Appeals resulting from in-year admission applications will be heard on a date to be arranged within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged with the Authority.
