School Appeals

Impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on school admission appeals

The government has issued new legislation and Regulations around how school admission appeals will now be conducted, called the School Admissions (England) (Coronavirus) (Appeals Arrangements) (Amendment) Regulations 2020.

Part of the new Regulations disapply the requirement that appeals panels must be held in person and instead give flexibility for panel hearings to take place either by video conference, telephone or through a paper-based appeal where all parties can make representations in writing.

The Regulations also stipulate that appeals cannot be delayed or postponed until they can be heard face-to-face. As a result, Devon’s Independent Appeals Panel Service will be conducting appeals via video conferencing facilities.

All parents that have already submitted an appeal for either primary or secondary schools have also been contacted separately.

Devon County Council aim to hear the majority of those appeals submitted as part of the main admissions round before the start of the September term, wherever possible. All appeals will continue to take place throughout May/June/July, and if necessary into August, and parents will be notified of the date 14 days in advance.
