Under the terms of the School Admissions Appeals Code 2012, if you apply for and are refused a place at St. Peter's Cross Keys Academy, you have the right to appeal.
From March 2020, Admission Appeals at SNMAT academies are managed by Nottinghamshire County Council Appeals Team, who provide an independent appeals process. If you decide that you wish to proceed with an appeal, you should within 20 school days of the date of the refusal letter complete the online form on Nottinghamshire County Council's website:-
For parents/carers who are unable to use the online form, a printed form can requested from NCC's customer contact centre – 0300 500 80 80.
Appeals at SNMAT academies will be heard by an Independent Appeals Panel in accordance with the School Admissions Code 2014, The School Admissions Appeals Code 2012 and Part 3 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998.
Any appeals already in progress at the 28th February 2020, will continue to be dealt with by the current appeals provider.
Impact of Coronavirus on SNMAT Admission Appeals
Given the situation relating to the current Coronavirus epidemic and the fast moving changes relating to Government advice on public health, the SNMAT, as an Own Admissions Authority, has taken the difficult decision to suspend its admissions appeals, for the foreseeable future, pending further guidance from the Department for Education. This decision has been taken for the protection of all parties involved in the appeal hearing.
Nottinghamshire County Council who administer SNMATs admissions appeals has confirmed they are still taking appeals from parents and logging them as normal, so if you wish to register an appeal for an SNMAT partner academy, please go to NCC’s website and complete the online appeals form:-
