The Education Funding Agency
A parent who has been unsuccessful cannot appeal against the Independent Appeal Panel's decision. If you consider that there was an administrative fault regarding the way your appeal was conducted, parents can complain to the Education Funding Agency. The agency do not have the power to overturn the panel's decision; that can only be done through the courts. The Company, the Governors and the panel will be consulted by the Education Funding Agency if complaints are made. If the agency does find fault AND a place would have been offered, a fresh hearing is conducted by another independent appeal panel.
