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

Harris Primary Academy East Dulwich, 173 Lordship Lane, SE22 8HA.

Completed appeal forms for Reception 2020 entry must be received by the Academy by the closing date 4pm on 18th May 2021.

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.

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