Appeals Timetable

Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on school appeals

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we may not be able to hold face-to-face hearings this year as the School Admission Appeals Code normally requires. However, it is very important that you are still able to have a fair hearing of your child to attend your preferred school, so the Government has passed new legislation to enable this to happen safely. Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council's hearings will take place via telephone conference calls.
