This publication gives information about appeals against applicants having not received a requested offer of a place into primary or secondary school for the start of the 2013 to 2014 academic year. It is based on appeals lodged with the appropriate governing body by 1 September 2013. Previously the data was published relating to appeals covering the whole academic year.
The publication details, by school phase, the number and percentage of appeals lodged and the number which are heard by an appeals panel. Of those heard, the number and percentage which are found in the parent’s favour (ie upheld) is also given.
The data is additionally broken down by school type (foundation, academy etc) and, separately, by local authority. This is the first time that academies provided information on their appeals, and therefore the first time they were included in the report.
This data cannot be directly compared to that previously published on admissions appeals, due to the changes detailed above.
