Appeals Timetable

Appeals for children refused a place at a preferred school for admission to Reception/Y7 in September 2022 will be heard in line with the School Admissions Appeals Code (2012).

Appeal panel hearing will take place within 40 school days of the deadline for submitting appeals. The Department for Education has now issues revised guidelines for Admissions Authorities on how appals should be dealt with. Appeals will be heard during May/June/July; all appellants will be contacted by the independent appeals clerk to explain this process.

Parents/Carers will be notified of their appeal date by the independent appeal panel clerk.

In Year Admissions

The normal years for school entry applications are Reception and Year 7. If you want to apply for a school place outside normal school entry years you can apply for a transfer to another school. Any parent wishing to apply for a transfer must obtain a Common Transfer Form, which can be collected from your child’s current school. 

The current school must complete Section 2 and send the application to the Sheffield City Council  Admissions Team by email at ed-admissions@sheffield.gov.uk or by post:

Admissions
Floor 5, West Wing
Moorfoot
S1 4PE

The Admissions Team will then manage the application on your behalf. There is an aim to inform you of the decision for the school you have applied for within 15 school days and the reason for that decision. If it is not possible to offer a place at any of your preferred schools, you will be given advice on the statutory appeal procedure.
