Guide: School admission appeals


This guide will help you to appeal to the Devon Independent School Appeals Panel if your child has been refused a place at your preferred school.

If you want more information about the appeal process and to request appeal paperwork after reading this guide, please contact the Education helpline on 0345 155 1019. If you have already completed the appeal paperwork and lodged an appeal, and want information from the clerk about your submitted appeal, please contact 01392 382486.

Children with a Statement of Special Educational Need or an Education, Health and Care plan (EHCP) cannot appeal through this process and must appeal through the Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal.
