Appeals 2019-20

The School Admission Appeals Code 2012 at Section 2.1 states that appeals for applications made in the normal admissions round, which in this case is Reception and Junior applications for September 2019/20, must be heard within 40 school days from the deadline for lodging appeals.

With these dates in mind and just for guidance, Derby City Council has set the following dates for their appeal closing dates and hearings for students starting school in September 2019 or moving to Junior School in September 2019.
