Appeals for a place in Year 7, September 2020
If your child is due to start secondary school in September 2020 you can appeal between 1 March - 31 March 2020 to guarantee that your appeal will be heard by 29 May 2020. For applications made in the normal admission round, appeals must be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals. For late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 schools days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 schools days of the appeals being lodged.
In-Round Appeals Process for Entry to Year 7 in September 2020 – update 16 April 2020
Please note: In order to submit an appeal, you must have named Rainham Mark Grammar School on your original Medway application form (Medway Council Admission to Secondary School Sept 2020, Page 11). https://www.medway.gov.uk/downloads/file/3582/secondary_admissions_2020-2021_determined
The government published this guidance for schools on 14 April 2020 with the view to it becoming operational on 24 April 2020.
In order to compensate for any disruption caused to your child’s appeal by recent circumstances, we have extended the deadline for submission of an appeal for a place in Year 7 for September 2020 from 31 March 2020 to 4pm on 15 May 2020. If you have already submitted your child’s appeal, you may submit any further documents that you feel might support your child’s case by the same deadline. (N.B. it is not recommended that you submit copies of your child’s school work as the independent panel will not be in a position to judge its quality.) All documents should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org rather than posted to the school. If you cannot do this, please email Admissions so that they can advise you.
Once we have details of how the revised appeals process will be conducted, we will write to all appellants informing them of it and will post this information on our website too.
