Appeals timetable for 2017 should you not be successful in securing the place you preferred:
If the Governors have not been able to meet your preference for a place at this school for Reception September 2017, you can appeal against the decision to an independent appeals panel. You will need to put your appeal in writing using the school's appeal form and send this by 20th May 2017 to:
Clerk to the Appeals Panel
St Anthony's Catholic Primary School, Barkly Road, Beeston, Leeds LS11 7JS
Appeals submitted by this date will be heard within 40 school days. Appeals submitted after this date will be heard within 40 school days from the date when the appeal is received by the Clerk to the Aided Appeals Panel; this may not be before the end of the academic year. You will receive at least 10 school days notice of your appeal hearing. You must ensure any additional evidence you wish to submit in support of your appeal is received by the Clerk to the Aided Appeals Panel at least four working days before your appeal.
In Year Appeals
The deadline for lodging an appeal against a decision for any other year group is 20 school days from the date of notification that the application for a school place was unsuccessful. Appeals will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being received by the Clerk. Following the hearing, decision letters will be sent within five school days of the hearing. School days are term time only and do not include school holidays. If an appeal is submitted in the holidays the school days deadline will not start until the beginning of the next term e.g. an appeal received in July after schools have closed will not be heard until the new academic term, ‘school days’ will start from the beginning of September when the term starts.
