Starting School 

Will your child be aged 4 by September 2018? If so, you need to apply for a school place.  You can apply online at: www.somerset.gov.uk/admissions

It is important that Somerset County Council receive your application by 15 January 2018 for your child to start school in September 2018.  If you have any queries, please contact Somerset Direct on 0300 123 2224.


Appeals

The School Admissions Code states that admission authorities must set a timetable for organising and hearing appeals that:

  • include a deadline for lodging appeals which allows appellants at least 20 school days from the date of notification that their appeal was unsuccessful to prepare and lodge their written appeal
  • ensures that appellants receive at least 10 school days' notice of their appeal hearing
  • includes reasonable deadlines for appellants to submit additional evidence, for admission authorities to submit their evidence, and for the clerk to send appeal papers to the panel and parties
  • ensures that decision letters are sent within five school days of the hearing wherever possible

As Somerset County Council oversees our appeal process, they have produced a timetable which can be viewed following the below link.
