If your child has been refused a place to start in September 2017 at your preferred school and you wish to appeal, please be aware of the following:

School Admission Appeals are organised for the majority of schools in Poole by the Clerk to the Independent Appeals Panel within the Council’s Democratic Services Team.

Appeals will take place between May and July 2017.

Appeals will conform to the following timelines:-

  • Secondary Schools – Late May/Early June
  • Infant/Junior/Primary/Middle Schools – Mid June until July

Appeal forms received after 26 June 2017 are not likely to be heard until AFTER the start of the September 2017 term. Therefore, it is recommended that forms are submitted at an early stage to avoid disappointment.

If you wish to appeal please contact the School Admissions Team on 01202 261936
