Appealing a Schools Decision - 2019

If your child has been refused a place in the nursery school, nursery unit, primary school or post-primary school, you can appeal the decision of the Board of Governors. You cannot appeal a decision about a pre-school place in a voluntary or private nursery setting.

Independent tribunals will be established by the Education Authority to consider appeals. These tribunals will decide on whether or not a school has correctly applied its admissions criteria in deciding to refuse the child admission to the school. The actual substance of the criteria cannot be challenged in the appeal tribunal.
