School entry appeals 'may be unfair'

Parents whose children fail to get into academies or faith schools in England may not get a fair right of appeal, claims an official legal watchdog.

Some appeals for schools outside local authority control lack independence and transparency, argues the Administrative Justice and Tribunals Council (AJTC).

The rules allow these schools to run their own appeals, says the watchdog.
