The draft school admission appeals code 2022 (which has been corrected), remains provisional until it completes the Parliamentary process. It is expected to come into force from 1 October 2022, subject to Parliamentary approval. The DfE will also update the non-statutory advice on school admission appeals at this time.

The current school admission appeals code (2012) remains in force until the draft appeals code 2022 is approved. Admission appeals lodged on or before 30 September 2022 must follow the current appeals code 2012.
