How to appeal for a place at Spratton

If you have applied and been refused a place at our school (in any year group), you are entitled to appeal against that decision.

Appeals for PDET academies are administered by The Diocese of Peterborough Education team. For more information on the process please see: www.peterborough-diocese.org.uk/church-schools/admission-and-appeals/

If you wish to appeal please contact the Appeals Administrator by emailing education@peterborough-diocese.org.uk and ask for an appeals pack.

The pack includes some explanatory notes about the process of Admission Appeals and a Notice of Appeal form that, should you decide to proceed with an appeal, will need to be completed and returned by email if possible, but if not, to the Diocesan Office instead.
