In addition to the right of appeal, unsuccessful candidates will be offered the opportunity to be placed on a waiting list.
This waiting list will be maintained in the order of the oversubscription criteria and not in the order in which applications are received or added to the list.
A waiting list will be maintained by the LA until the 31st August and subsequently by the school until 31st December. Placing a child’s name on the waiting list does not guarantee that a place will become available. This does not prevent parents from exercising their right to appeal against the decision not to offer a place. It is possible that when a child is directed under the local authority’s fair access protocol they will take precedence over those children already on the list.
