Parents have the right to appeal to an independent panel for a place at their preferred school. The deadline for appeals to be lodged is 4pm on 26 March 2021.
For Secondary Transfer appeals, Hertfordshire parents can access the online system to register an appeal via their admissions account. Parents who live out of county or who applied on paper should now use the appeals online system and will need to contact Hertfordshire County Council Customer Service Centre on 0300 123 4043 to obtain their registration details to gain access.
For In-Year Appeals, parents should also use the appeals online system. Parmiter's School will notify Hertfordshire County Council's Admissions and Transport team (ATT) every time an In-Year application is considered. The ATT will then send a letter to parents with their registration details to enable them to access the appeals online system.
Information on the appeals system can be viewed on the Hertfordshire County Council website: https://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/services/schools-and-education/school-admissions/school-appeals/school-appeals.aspx.
Secondary Transfer appeals will be heard between 29 April and 14 June 2021 (excluding 31 - 4 June 2021).
Appeals lodged after the deadline will be heard within 40 school days of the appeal deadline or 30 school days of being lodged, whichever is the later date.
Appellants will be sent notification of their appeal hearing at least 10 clear school days in advance of the hearing.
Appellants will be sent a copy of the school's case 7 working days in advance of the hearing.
Additional supporting information
If an appellant wishes to submit further evidence, which was not included with their initial appeal, they should ensure this is received at least 7 clear working days, not counting the day of postage or the hearing, in advance of your appeal.
Please remember that any confidential medical/social evidence submitted to the Admissions Authority in support of your application will not be provided to an appeal panel. If you wish to rely on this in support of your appeal you will need to submit this documentation to the appeals team.
Only a short document, such as a doctor's letter not previously available, will be accepted up to 4 clear working days prior to the hearing. Any additional evidence or information received after this deadline will not be circulated and may not be considered at the hearing.
