School appeals update – April 2020

Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on School Admission Appeals

We have been monitoring government guidance as to the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on School Admissions Appeals.

Unfortunately, it has been necessary to postpone all School Admissions Appeals.  Please note that this may result in unavoidable delays in processing and scheduling the appeals.

We are currently awaiting further guidance from the Department for Education as to how appeals should be dealt with during this period.

We will provide updates on this as and when they are received
