Statutory School Appeals - Could you be a Panel Member?

Appeal Panels are convened throughout Essex to examine cases in which parents wish to contest either the refusal by a school’s Admissions Authority to admit a child, or a Governing Body’s decision to permanently exclude a child. The choices are difficult, and there may not be an obvious “right” answer, but it is vital that access to this independent process exists both for children and the schools involved. The Panels are independent of the County Council and School Governing Bodies.

Essex County Council Statutory Appeals Team is currently looking for Panel members for both Admission Appeals and Exclusion Appeals. If you have the ability to listen, to be impartial without being swayed by emotion, can appreciate both sides of an argument and are able to make reasoned decisions, you may be just the person we are looking for. Can you spare a few days or more each year to participate in this rewarding and interesting task? This is a chance to contribute to the futures of young people in Essex.

Although previous specialist knowledge of this field is not essential, we are looking for people who have both time to consider the issues properly and who believe passionately that education is worth that time. We offer full training and will reimburse travel and subsistence expenses.

Membership of Appeal Panels is constituted in accordance with the School Standards and Framework Act 1998, and some people may not be eligible to serve.

Please contact 03330 139899 or email StatutoryAppeals@essex.gov.uk

Despite the unprecedented circumstances brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic Great Baddow High School students were able to celebrate a superb set of results. I would like to congratulate all the students for what they have achieved, the tremendous efforts and hard work they have put in and I wish them every success as they progress onto the next stage of their education, employment or training. In line with all Mid-Essex secondary schools, we adopted a meticulous approach towards the Teacher Assessed Grades in which students undertook assessments in schools to support the process. Thankfully, our students are now able to celebrate, as their A Level, BTEC and Level 3 grades will allow them to take up University places, apprenticeships and employment opportunities. All our students have real cause for celebration, and I would like to highlight the following individuals for their outstanding performance: - Charlotte H achieved 4A* grades in Maths, Biology, Chemistry and PE. Charlotte is going on to study Medicine at Birmingham. Luca G achieved 3A* grades in Maths, Physics and Geography and an A for EPQ. Luca is going on to study an MSc in Aerospace Engineering at Swansea University. Beth S achieved 3A* grades in Psychology, Geography and History. Beth is going on to study History at Exeter. Shreya J achieved 2A* grades in Maths and Economics and 2 A grades in Biology and Chemistry. Shreya is going on to study Biomedical Science at University College London. Nathan T achieved A* in Maths, Dist* in Cyber Security and A’s in German and Further Maths. Nathan is going on to study German and Japanese at the University of Manchester. Josh F achieved 3 A*s in Biology, Geography and Physical Education and is studying Geography at the London School of Economics. BTEC remains very strong at the school with four students achieving Triple Distinction* in Sport, including Jack B who will be going on to study Sport and Exercise Science at Exeter University and Tiegan T who will be studying Sports Rehabilitation at Nottingham university.
