Changes to the appeals schedule
Due to the temporary legislation relating to School Appeals, the school appeal schedule has changed. The temporary deadline for lodging an appeal is 28 calendar days from the date of the notification of a school place refusal - that is the date on the letter you received that refused your child's admission to your preferred schools.
