Appeals for September 2022  (after offers made)

Whilst we would be delighted to accept all applicants for a place at St Andrew's, current infant class size legislation requires that we can only take 45 pupils in our Reception cohort.  In order to ensure fairness to all, we set a table of criteria, broken down into several categories clearly listed in the 2022-23 Admissions Policy. 

If our Reception classes are over-subscribed, then we carefully place the applicants into their correct category.  

You may also wish to place your child on the waiting list for the Reception class; if you wish us to do so, please inform the school in writing once places have been offered as well as putting in an appeal.

Should you wish to refer this matter to a full appeal then it is your right to do so; however please be aware that the rules set down have been correctly followed and we will therefore defend any appeal that is instigated. Your appeal should clearly detail why you believe the policy categories have not been followed.

 It is worth noting that if the Panel accepts that admission of an additional child would breach the infant class size legislation, the Panel will then only allow an appeal if satisfied that our published criteria are unlawful or had not been properly followed for your child (and that he/she would otherwise have been offered a place), or that we have acted unreasonably.

If you wish to appeal, please complete and return the attached form ASAP but by Wednesday 18th May at the latest and we will arrange for an  Independent Appeals Panel to be convened to hear your appeal. Appeals received by this date will be held by Monday 18th July. 

Please note that you can appeal after the 18th May, but we cannot then guarantee that your appeal will be heard before the start of the new school year.
