When can I appeal my child's school place?

If you have applied for your child to change schools part-way through the year, an appeal will be heard within 30 school days of you requesting one.

For school places starting September 2019, the appeal dates are:

  offer date deadline for appeals appeals will be heard by
Secondary March 1, 2019 March 29, 2019 June 18, 2019
Primary April 16, 2019 May 17, 2019 July 19, 2019

Appeals lodged after these dates will be heard within 40 school days of the deadline or 30 school days of being lodged, whichever is later.

You will be told about your appeal hearing approximately ten school days before the hearing, and sent a copy of the school’s case approximately seven school days in advance of the hearing.
