Kent County Council Appeal Process
The guidance from Kent County Council about the appeal process can be found on their website at the following links:-
If you are unhappy with the school place you've been offered, you can appeal for any of the schools you named in your application.
We recommend you still accept the place your child has been offered. This will not affect your appeal and will guarantee your child has a school place if your appeal is unsuccessful. If your appeal is successful you must remember to tell the school you were originally offered that you no longer want the place.
If you weren't offered your chosen school, this is usually because the school is full and there were other children who more closely met the school’s oversubscription criteria.
If your child is due to start primary school in September 2023, you can appeal if you are refused a place at one of your preferred schools on National Offer Day (Monday 17 April 2023).
You must submit your appeal before Monday 15 May 2023 for it to be considered by Monday 17 July 2023. Any appeals received after this time will be heard within 40 school days from the deadline, or where reasonably possible in line with updated guidance from the Department for Education.
For late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 school days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged where reasonably possible in line with updated guidance from the Department for Education.
