Admissions Information and Appeals

Appeals and waiting lists


You can appeal for a place at any school you listed as a preference on your application that you were not offered.

Where to appeal

We can only deal with appeals made to St Andrews and St Francis CE Primary School. Appeals for a Brent community school place should be made directly to Brent Local Authority.


Appeals are heard by an independent appeal panel.

It is essential that you read and understand the appeals process before submitting a request for an appeal.

The school can assist in the appeals process in certain cases. During the process if you want to talk to anyone about your application, please contact the School Admissions Office

Appeals forms

Appeals processes vary according to what school year your child is applying for.

Waiting lists

Reception applications

Your child will be automatically added to the waiting list for any Brent schools you listed as a higher preference than the school you were offered.  For schools outside Brent you should contact the admissions authority for each school for details about how waiting lists are managed.

Waiting list will be managed by SASF from May, after the second round of offers. Waiting lists places are every changing based on new applications so will only be accurate on the date of admissions criterion consideration.

In Year Applications

If we are unable to offer you a place at our schools we will place your child's name on the waiting list.


You can apply for an in year school placeThe will contact at regular intervals during the year to confirm that you still want to stay on our waiting list.

Please note that:

  • your place on the waiting list is determined by the school's admissions criteria
  • if a place becomes available, whoever meets the criteria most closely will be offered a place
  • the length of time spent on the waiting list will not give you priority over other applicants.

Waiting lists are not operated on a first come first served basis. They are ranked on the waiting list according to the school's admission criteria.

When a space becomes available all children on the waiting list are considered. Those who meet the school's oversubscription criteria will be offered a place. The length of time spent on the waiting list will not give priority over other applicants - it is possible for a child to go down as well as up the list. Being on a waiting list is no guarantee of a place at that school.

LATEST NEWS: The school is closed to pupils for an Inset day on Friday 24th May. We look forward to welcoming you all back after half term.
