Appeals Timetable

The information provided on this page is for the 2017 main intakes for Reception, Year 7 and the Y3.

Lincolnshire County Council is the admission authority for Community and Voluntary Controlled schools and will hear appeals for these schools according to the timetable below.

 Secondary SchoolsPrimary Schools
Offer day1 March 201718 April 2017
Deadline for us to receive an appealNoon 29 March 2017Noon 17 May 2017
Begin hearing appeals02 May 201712 June 2017
Finish hearing appeals03 July 201719 July 2017


Other admission authorities (Academies, Foundation and Aided schools) will publish their own timetables on their websites.

To find out if a school is Community, Voluntary Controlled, Foundation, Voluntary Aided or an Academy, please refer to the A-Z List of Schools.

We hear appeals in office hours during school term time. 

Where there are several appeals for a given school we will always try to group them together.

In planning appeals we will try to hear them in the order parents prefer and avoid times when parents tell us they are unavailable, but this is not always possible where there are several appeals for the same school.

Appeals received after the deadline will still be heard though may not be heard with those appeals received before the deadline. 

It is important to submit your appeal as soon as possible so that it can be heard at the first available opportunity. 

It is also in your best interests to do this as decisions are made after each set of appeals and no account will be taken of any appeals not yet heard. 

It is therefore possible that if your appeal is not heard until a later date, decisions will already have been made by the Appeal Panel which could have resulted in an increase in the number of pupils attending the school.
