Appeals data for primary and secondary schools by academic year.
There are a number of schools that hear appeals that are not recorded on Leeds City Council's admissions system. These schools do not have an SLA with the authority, the attached data only shows community schools and other schools that have undertaken an SLA with the authority.
From 2017/18 we have indicated if the appeal was not granted based on class size legislation (not CSL). For the vast majority of Key Stage 1 appeals the reason for refusal is that to admit the child would breach Class Size Legislation, however, for some schools Class Size Legislation does not apply (primarily because if a child was admitted to these schools the class would not have more than 30 children per teacher). For these schools, the argument against admission is that it would cause prejudice to the school and the children already in attendance if a further child were to be admitted. For appeals granted which state (not CSL) the parent was able to evidence that admitting their child to the school would not cause prejudice to the school.
