Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on appeals

The Appeals Team at Buckinghamshire Council (which administers admission appeals for this school) is unable to arrange appeal hearings currently  due to the government’s social distancing and lockdown measures. Normally, if parents make admission appeals following the National Offer Days, they are heard by the Independent Appeal Panels between May and July.  Unfortunately  this year, appeals will be delayed. Government advice is being closely monitored and parents will be advised when their appeals can be heard as soon as further information is available.
