If your child is not offered a place at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, you have the right to appeal against that decision to an Independent Appeal Panel (set up in accordance with sections 88 and 94 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998). Appeals must be made in writing and must set out the reasons on which the appeal is made. Appeals should be made using Surrey’s online appeals form. The appeals system is operated independently from the school. Parents/carers have the right to make oral representations to the Appeal Panel.
Appellants will be sent notification of their appeal hearing at least 10 clear school days in advance of the hearing. Appellants will be sent a copy of the school's case 7 clear working days in advance of the hearing.
Appellants must ensure that any further evidence not included with their initial appeal, is received by 5pm on the day notified in the letter with details of the hearing. Any additional evidence or information received after this date might not be considered at the appeal hearing.
For Reception 2023, appeals should be lodged no later than 20 school days after the National Offer Day for primary schools (17 April 2023). Completed paperwork must be received by the school no later than 16 May 2023, and will be heard within within 40 school days of the appeal deadline or 30 school days of being lodged, whichever is the later date.
Late application appeals will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.
In-year applications will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.
