Admissions Appeals

If you have not been given the school place at Temple Moor that you want you can appeal against the decision to an independent appeals panel. You can appeal for more than one school at the same time.

If you wish to appeal against a decision for a Year 7 place, or transfers in any other year group, you need to complete an appeals form from the Admission Team at Leeds City Council.

All appeal requests received by (deadline to be confirmed by LCC) will be heard within 40 school days.

Appeals can still be submitted after this date, and will be heard within 30 school days from the date when the appeal is received by the Local Authority, but this may not be before the end of the academic year.

You will receive at least 10 school days’ notice of any appeal hearing.

You must ensure any additional evidence you wish to submit in support of your appeal is received by the Admissions Team at least four working days before your appeal. Any material not submitted by the specified deadline may not be considered by the Independent Appeal Panel. You must also inform the Local Authority if you intend to call any witnesses or be represented at the appeal hearing.

Appeals against a decision for transfers in any other year groups will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being received by the Local Authority.

Decision letters will be sent within five working days of the hearing.

School days are term time only. If an appeal is submitted in the holidays the 30 school days start from the beginning of the new term e.g. an appeal received in July after schools have closed will not be heard on the 30th school day starting from the beginning of September when the term starts.
