This appeals process is for people applying for their child to start primary school for the first time in September 2022.

After allocation day on 19 April 2022, you will be able to appeal for any of the primary, infant, junior or middle schools you applied for but were unsuccessful. We'll tell you how to do that closer to the time.


  • Appeals deadline – submit your appeal by 4pm on 20 May 2022.
  • Appeals will be heard between 13 June and 22 July.

Appeals lodged after these dates will be heard within 40 school days of the appeal deadline or 30 school days of being lodged, whichever is the later date.
