School admission appeal guidance 2023

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.

Impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on educationĀ appeals

We are monitoring government guidance and currently considering the possible impact of the coronavirus on School Admission Appeals and Exclusion Reviews.

The Independent Appeal Panel Members are unpaid and trained volunteers, many of whom are in self-isolation due to the current government advice. There may be unavoidable delays to progressing and hearing appeals due to the coronavirus outbreak, as our primary focus is the wellbeing of our residents, panel members and staff.
