Admissions – temporary amended regulations and guidance
The School Admissions (England) (Coronavirus) (Appeals Arrangements) (Amendment) Regulations 2020 came into force on Friday 24th April and can be found here. These regulations will remain in force until 31 January 2021. DfE has drafted non-statutory guidance explaining the temporary changes and offering guidance for managing appeals during COVID-19 to support admission authorities in managing their admission appeals. These documents should both be read in conjunction with the School Admission Appeals Code.
Face-to-face appeal hearings should not take place until the government guidelines on social distancing indicate it is safe to do so. Admission authorities, clerks and panels should comply with the government guidelines applicable at the time of arranging and hearing the appeal.
Where face-to-face hearings cannot take place, hearings should be conducted by telephone or video conference. Where telephone or video conference is not possible, appeals conducted entirely on the basis of written submissions are acceptable.
The temporary regulations impose some new rules relating to appeal timetables. Please refer to the full guidance for details.
A reminder that our platinum partner, Browne Jacobson has published guidance to support schools and trusts.
As we use the Local Authority for our appeals panel we are waiting from direction from them on how they wish to proceed, they are currently trialling an online system. If you have appealed we will be in touch when we have conformation on how this will proceed.
