Hertfordshire parents can access the online system via their admissions account, which will not be activated until the relevant national allocation day. Parents who live out-of-county or who applied on paper will need to use a separate appeals online system. Those parents need to contact Hertfordshire County Council's Customer Service Centre on 0300 123 4043 for their registration details in order to gain access, which will be available post allocations.
The system can be accessed via https://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/services/schools-and-education/school-admissions/school-appeals/school-appeals.aspx
In year appeals
Parents appeal via our appeals online system accessed via https://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/services/schools-and-education/school-admissions/in-year-admissions-change-schools-during-the-year/in-year-appeals.aspx#
Appeals resulting from in year admission applications will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged
Additional supporting information
If an appellant wishes to submit further evidence, which was not included with their initial appeal, they should ensure this is received at least 7 clear working days, not counting the day of postage or the hearing, in advance of your appeal.
Please remember that any confidential medical/social evidence submitted to the Admission Authority (AA) in support of your application will not be provided to an appeal panel. If you wish to rely on this in support of your appeal you will need to submit this documentation to the appeals team.
Only a short document, such as a doctor’s letter not previously available, will be accepted up to 4 clear working days prior to the hearing. Any additional evidence or information received after this deadline will not be circulated and may not be considered at the hearing.
