Appeal Dates & Information
If you have not been offered a place at East Barnet School, the law entitles you to appeal against that decision to an Independent Appeal Panel. This panel is completely independent of the school and the Local Authority. The appeals are held locally.
If you wish to appeal, please download an Appeal Form. Please do NOT use ANY other appeal form or send your form to your local authority. It is suggested that you download the explanatory leaflet about appeals which you should read before you complete the appeal form. The appeal form is in Word format. The panel would prefer the form to be typed, but handwritten forms are acceptable. In black ink. Please ensure that the clerk can read your details including telephone numbers and e mail addresses. ‘Signatures’ may be typed.
You should include any evidence or supporting material with your appeal form and you MUST give the grounds for your appeal at the time you lodge your appeal form. Your appeal form will not be accepted unless you state the grounds for your appeal. You may appeal for more than one school.
