However, if this is not possible,additional information will be accepted up to three working days before the appeal hearing. It is possible that any information submitted after this time will not be considered by the Independent Appeal Panel. 

No appeals will be heard until the deadline for submitting appeal forms has passed. 

  • If you submit your Appeal form after this deadline, your appeal may not be heard with all the other appeals being heard for that school.
