If I add a new school that wasn't on my original CAF, am I right in thinking I put any non-grammars down in the right order, but I leave out the GS because of non-qual
No! You won't be able to appeal if the GS isn't one of your preferences.
but if I win an appeal for non-qual I will then go on the GS waiting list?
That bit looks all right!
From the Introduction to the 'How to appeal' guide:
(ii) Waiting lists & appeals
If you have been refused a grammar school for which you applied, you can:
• ask to go on the waiting list (if qualified)
• or appeal (whether qualified or not)
Normally you should ask to go on the waiting list (if qualified) and
ask for an appeal.
Please note that the waiting list is handled by Admissions, and is a completely separate procedure from an appeal.
To summarise the key points:
1. You can only appeal for a school you have been refused, so this means at this point you can only appeal for your preferences as they stand in the first round
2. You can appeal even if not qualified; the online form can be completed multiple times for schools using the LA appeals team.
3. You can change/add preferences for the second round, and if refused in the second round that triggers the right of appeal. These appeals are likely to happen after the appeals triggered in the first round, but may be combined - this will depend on the timeline.
4. Non qualified pupils are not included on waiting lists - they do not have to be on a waiting list to be successful at appeal. However they do have to have expressed a preference to trigger appeal.
5. Occasionally last year the IAP decided a child should have been qualified for the school, but then felt the school's case outweighed the child's, so - from the point of the appeal decision only - they were put on the waiting list.
