More About The Organisation
If a place is not offered at a parent's/carer's preferred choice of school there is the right of appeal to an independent body under the School Standards and Framework Act of 1998 - Section 94 and Schedule 24.
Where the child has not been issued with a proposed or final Statement of Special Educational Needs and parents/carers do not wish to accept the place offered at another school, they have the right of appeal to an independent appeal panel. Appeals for community and controlled schools are arranged by South Gloucestershire Council Legal and Democratic Services. Appeals for academies, voluntary aided and foundation schools are the responsibility of the Academy Trust or Governing Body.
