School admission appeal guidance 2022

If your child has been refused admission to a Lambeth community or voluntary-controlled school, you have a legal right to appeal against this decision to an Independent Appeals Panel.

Appeals for pupils in academic years: Reception to Year 2

Please note that we can only accept appeals for Lambeth community primary schools and Oasis Academy Johanna.

If you wish to appeal for admission to any other primary school, such as an academy, foundation or voluntary-aided school, you will need to contact the school(s) directly to obtain information about how to appeal.

A full list of the schools that we accept appeals for is included in the admission appeal guidance note. Please read this before completing the form.
