Reception bubbles have been adding their kindness pebbles to our new pathway. Their definition of kindness when discussing was ‘smiling’, ‘helping each other, ‘sharing’ and ‘showing love’ what clever and caring 4 and 5 year olds we have. https://t.co/4fcoTyzNq6

For Parents/Carers who Wish to Appeal

Parent(s) may wish to appeal against the Academy’s decision on admissions,  for any year group, based on the published admissions criteria.

If you wish to appeal, you must complete the appeal form (see below) stating the reason for the appeal.  You can attach to your appeals form any relevant documents and or a letter with information and evidence that you feel supports your case.

Completed forms should be sent to the Clerk to the Appeal Panel at:

Harris Primary Academy Beckenham, Manor Way, Beckenham, BR3 3SJ

Forms must be received by the Academy by the 15 May 2020.

The appeals will be heard, in private, by an Independent appeal Panel. The Clerk to the Appeal Panel will make an appointment within a reasonable time, Appeals may be made in English or the Parents’/Carers’ first language.

  • Only one appeal per application is allowed.
  • Appeals are conducted in person, and you may bring a friend.

The Appeal Hearing

The Academy will arrange for an Independent Appeals Panel to consider the Academy's reasons for refusal and your reasons for wanting to attend the Academy.  

The Panel will consist of 3 people (2 will have education experience and one will be an independent person with no education experience).

The Panel will consider the case put forward by you and the Academy. They must consider the admission arrangements for the Academy and the reasons why you want to attend that particular school.  The Panel must exercise its discretion by balancing the weight of your argument (for wanting to attend) against the Academy’s reasons for refusal i.e. the prejudice that one more student would cause to the education of the students already offered and the Health and Safety of all the students already attending the Academy, also taking into account the Academy's published admission arrangements.  

The decision of the Independent Appeals Panel is binding on the admissions authority and the Parents.
