Appeal a decision about your child's school place

Preparing for the appeal

Before your appeal, you will be sent a copy of the papers that were sent to the appeal panel.

If you have another document such as a letter or medical report that you want to show the appeal panel, you should send it as soon as possible before the appeal to:

Democratic Support Officer
Town Hall
Westoe Road
NE33 2RL

These documents must reach us at least 5 days before the appeal.

If these documents are late, the panel will decide whether or not to accept them.

If there are too many late documents, the panel might need to postpone the appeal.
