Learning Together; Rooted in God.
At St Lawrence Church of England Primary, we welcome people of all faiths and cultures. The full admission policy can be found on the following link:
If your application for a place at your preferred school is unsuccessful and you wish to appeal against the decision, you must apply in writing using the standard forms available on the following link:
Where the governors are unable to offer a place because the school is over subscribed, parents have the right to appeal to an independent admission appeal panel, set up under the School Standards and Framework Act, 1998, as amended by the Education Act, 2002. Parents should notify the clerk to the governors at the school by 28th April, 2020. Parents will have the opportunity to submit their case to the panel in writing and also to attend in order to present their case. You will normally receive 14 daysí notice of the place and time of the hearing.
Appeals which are received after the deadline will be slotted into the schedule where this is possible. There is no guarantee that this will happen and late appeals may be heard after the stipulated date at a second round of hearings. The schedule is subject to change depending upon the availability of appeal panel members, clerks, venues and the number of appeals for each school (which will vary year on year).
Please note that this right of appeal against the governorsí decision does not prevent you from making an appeal in respect of any other school.
If you cannot find the policy you require, please feel free to contact us and we gladly forward to you the required document.
