Dates and Deadlines – Primary Schools Appeals

*Appeal hearings for all appeals lodged after the 19th May 2020 will be heard with the on time appeals wherever possible. If they cannot be heard with the on-time appeals, they will be heard within 30 school days of the date the appeal is lodged. In some circumstances, this may mean appeals for the September intake will be heard after the school’s summer holidays.

We will endeavour to stick to the above dates wherever possible, however please be aware that these dates may be subject to change depending on the numbers of appeals received.
