About school admission appeals
If you are not allocated a place at a school you named as a preferred school on your application form, you have the right to appeal against this decision.
Please read the admission appeals booklet below which provides information around the appeals process in Bracknell Forest before completing the appeal form. You can also find national guidance for parents on school appeals on GOV.UK
Infant class size appeals
Government regulations limit class sizes to 30 pupils per class teacher in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. There are very limited grounds on which appeals to these year groups can be allowed. To allow an infant class size appeal, the Panel must find that:
- the infant class size limit (30 pupils per class teacher) would not be breached if your child were admitted to the school
- the admissions arrangements were not correctly and impartially applied in your case
- the decision to refuse your child a place at the school was unreasonable.
Please consider which of the above apply to your case before submitting an infant class size appeal.
