School Choice Appeals


Under the existing Law parents have a right to decide the school at which they may want their children to attend in accordance with s.9 Education Act 1996.

In those circumstances a parent can appeal to the Local Education Authority, and have their case heard before an independent appeal panel. Leadership Briefing issue 8.08 (92)
