Placing in schools appeal

Appeal a refused school placing request

If your school placing request was turned down, you can appeal the decision.

You can submit an appeal using the form at the bottom of this page.

Your appeal will be heard by an independent appeal committee who will consider your request.

If there is extra information that you want the appeal committee to know, you can send this to us after you have submitted your appeal request.

Before you submit an appeal

You need to have received a decision letter from us before you can appeal. It is important that you submit your appeal within 28 days of receiving your letter.

Please remember that you can only appeal once a year. 

Read about how to appeal on the Scottish Government website. 

After you submit an appeal 

After you have submitted the form, we will get in touch with you about the arrangements to have your appeal heard. We will tell you the date of your hearing once this has been arranged.
