You haven't been offered a place at Cavalry. Now what?

New to Reception Sept 2023

You haven't been offered a place at Cavalry. Now what?
Firstly, we know how you may be feeling right now. The offers and appeals process are coordinated by Cambridgeshire Admissions, not Cavalry Primary School, and you can lodge an appeal against the Admissions authority's decision. However, it is important to remember that you can only appeal if you believe that a mistake has been made in applying one of the admissions criteria. 
It is important to know that you can ask Cambridgeshire Admissions to add your child's name to our reserve list from the 17th April 2021. Accepting a place at an alternative school does not affect your child’s place on the reserve list for Cavalry, or your right of appeal. Your appeal will be heard by an independent school admission appeals panel. The panel's decision is binding on all parties: the school, the admission authority and you. You can remain on the school's reserve list if your appeal is not successful but you must inform Cambridgeshire Admissions every term if you wish to remain on the waiting list for the next term. Information about the appeals process can be found on the Cambridgeshire Admissions website here 
Your appeal paperwork must be completed and submitted to Cambridgeshire Admissions by 21st May 2021.
