The new School Admission Appeals Code and the new School Admissions Code have now been published on the DCSF site and will come into force in February 2009. They can be accessed from:

I was looking through the new Appeals Code at the end of last week, and the changes seem limited.

Quote:
10. This Code differs from the previous School Admission Appeals Code (issued in January 2008) in four respects:
a) it clarifies that only employees of the local education authority (not the local authority as a whole) are disqualified from serving on Appeal Panels (see paragraph 1.5(c));
b) it allows locally elected politicians to attend appeal hearings to support the appellant (see paragraph 2.14);
c) it clarifies the extent to which Appeal Panels can consider the lawfulness of admission arrangements (see paragraph 3.2(a)); and
d) it reflects the new right of children to appeal against decisions in relation to admissions from academic year 2010/11 (see paragraphs 1.31, 2.3, 2.5, 2.35).

11. The changes referred to in a), b) and c) above apply to all appeals heard after the coming into force of this Code.

Etienne, you've put that as a quote. Is there a thread that I've missed?

Thanks

It's quoting from the introduction section of the new Code.

I had rather hoped that the bit concerning local non-statutory reviews of 11+ misses might have been ditched but, unfortunately it hasn't -Sec 3.38.

etienne, when it says it comes into force in Feb 09, can it be applied to admissions going through for Sept 09?

Yes, depending on the date of the appeal.

Quote:
This Code comes into force on 10 February 2009 and applies to all appeals heard after that date.
