In accordance with recently published Government Guidance and in line with continuing social distancing measures for the safety of everyone, we are unable to hold face-to-face appeal hearings for the foreseeable future. Consequently, there may be some delays in holding school appeals. However, we understand the importance of your child’s education and respect your statutory right to appeal.
How will appeals be held?
In order to ensure that appeals can be completed as soon as practicable and before September 2020, we have decided to conduct virtual appeal hearings using Zoom technology where you will be able to participate in your appeal remotely using your own computer, tablet or smart phone. If this is not possible, it will be necessary for your appeal to be considered and determined based on your written submission and evidence provided; in this case, if you wish to submit additional information or evidence, please e-mail it to immediately, or on receipt of a notification letter.
You will receive advance notice of the date and time of the hearing by e-mail. Then a few days later, you will receive a second e-mail with your appeal papers attached and joining instructions for the virtual appeal hearing.
