We are the local authority for Kirklees. This role will involve volunteering with our School Appeals team.

Opportunities Overview
  • Volunteer Role Title
    School Appeal Panel Member
  • About the Volunteer Role
    School Appeals Panel member roles are voluntary and an allowance is paid. Panel members listen to both parties during an appeal hearing to decide whether a child should be admitted to a primary or secondary school. Once they have made a decision, it is legally binding on all those involved. School appeals are held throughout the year with the majority being held between April and October. Appeal hearings are held at Huddersfield or Dewsbury Town Hall and are usually scheduled for a full day between the hours of 9am to 5pm on a flexible ad hoc basis and these times could be subject to change. Flexibility is essential to attend appeals at both venues. Training is provided to ensure that members are familiar with the school admissions appeals code and fully equipped to perform their duties. Training can be held in either Dewsbury or Huddersfield. Each panel will have a clerk to advise and guide them through the appeal hearings.
