Has anyone had any success with primary school appeals in Leeds and have any tips?
We have been rejected from all five of our preferences (which are all our nearest secular schools). Instead we have been offered a place at a Jewish primary school, which is a good school but has a strong Jewish ethos and we are not Jewish and therefore do not fit the religious requirement for this school. We feel strongly that our son attends a non-faith school as a personal choice and therefore didn't include any faith schools in our preferences but the education department don't appear to have acknowledged this? Can they force your child into a faith school against your wishes?
