The Grove Primary School office is happy to assist parents in these procedures. Please speak to Mrs Reek at the school office.

We provide a programme of visits and workshops for parents and children prior to admission to Reception classes. This enables children to become familiar with their new surroundings and to settle in quickly and supports parents in supporting their children. Prospective parents may also visit the school at any time by arrangement with the school office.

Appeals

The school use Leicestershire County Council admission procedures and therefore all appeals are dealt with through Leicestershire County Council schools admissions department.

If you decide to appeal, you must have applied and been refused a school place before you can appeal. You will need to contact the School Admissions Service to request a Notice of Appeal form, or you can download a form from www.leicestershire.gov.uk/appeal-a-school-place These must be returned by the closing date to the County Solicitor.

The County Solicitor will let you know when the appeal will be heard.

You may attend the appeal hearing yourself, or with a friend if you wish. You may ask a representative to speak for you or you can send a written statement.

Your case will be considered by the Appeals Committee which is independent of the Children and Family Services.

Please note that repeat appeals in the same academic year will not be allowed unless there has been a significant change in your circumstances, e.g. a house move. In appeals for places in infant classes that already have 30 children, the panel can only allow the parent’s appeal if the Local Authority has made an error or acted unreasonably.
