Applying for school in-year | London Borough of Bexley

The Local Authority holds all waiting lists for places that may become available throughout the year. Any child not offered a place will be placed on the waiting list. Parents have the statutory right of appeal.

Parents of children not offered places will also be informed of the appeals procedure.  Parents have a statutory right to appeal in the event of Bexley admissions’ decision not to offer a place. Although Bexley is the admissions authority, an independent panel considers appeals and their decision is binding on both parties.


Details of how to appeal a can be found here: Bexley Admissions Booklet

Please note that because of the legal requirement to have a maximum of 30 pupils in infant classes, the power of Appeal Panels to allow appeals is very limited, therefore very few are successful. Parents are only likely to be successful with an appeal if they can show either:

a) That the admission of their child would not breach the infant class size limit.

b) That a place would have been offered if the admission arrangements had complied with admissions law or had been correctly and impartially applied.

c) That the decision not to admit their child was not one which a reasonable Admission Authority would make in the circumstances of the case.
