Admission Appeals


This section has been prepared to assist parents who wish to lodge an appeal because, through the normal operation of the school’s admission policy, their child/ren have not been allocated a place at Hillingdon Primary School.

Who is responsible for making admission decisions?

Decisions regarding school admissions are made by The Elliot Foundation Academy Trust.  The LA co-ordinates admissions to Reception, however, the Trust decides whether they can offer a place in the school in accordance with our published admission criteria. We also arrange our own admissions for applications received outside the normal admissions rounds (i.e. in-year applications.)

What do I do if I am unhappy with the decision?

If you have not been offered a place for your child at Hillingdon Primary School then you have the right to appeal.  Please read our guidance for parents considering an appeal (below), which contains further information relating to the appeals process.  All appeals must be submitted on our Admission Appeals Form, which can be found at the bottom of this page.

Completed Admission Appeals forms should be returned to the Operations Manager, Mrs Akhtar, at the school address.

Timetable for Appeals for Admission to Reception 2021

Appeals for entry into Primary School for September 2021 may be made from National Offer Day (16th April 2021) until Friday 14th May 2021.  Appeals submitted within this timescale will be heard before the end of the summer term 2021.

Appeals can be submitted after the deadline, however there is no guarantee that the appeal hearing will still be arranged before the end of the summer term.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions, the Department for Education (DfE) have made changes to the way admission authorities may carry out admission appeals this year: please see our COVID-19 briefing note below for further information.
