Providing an experienced advocate to act as a Presenting Officer for Admission Appeals
When a parent is informed that their child has not been offered a place at their preferred school they have a right to appeal.
The School Admission Appeals Code 2012 require that an independent appeal panel must be arranged to hear admission appeals and that all appeal hearings are conducted in a fair and transparent way. The school must prepare and send out a written appeal case in advance of the hearing which must contain all of the information required to support the refusal. The school must also present that appeal case at the hearing.
