You will get that information from the admissions authority in advance of your appeal hearing. You need to remember in your appeal that the panel can only review the decision making process, they can't re-make the decision. Therefore you need to focus on:
-will the admission of an additional pupil cause a breach of the infant class size legislation? (very likely if the class has 30 in it)
-were the admission arrangements legal (it's incredibly unlikely they weren't)
-were the admission arrangements applied to your case correctly?
-was the decision the authority took reasonable?

Unless the arrangements were illegal, applied to your application wrongly /unfairly or unreasonably, your appeal won't be successful.

mama36 if you are appealing for a school which has infant class sizes of 30, no amount of data showing over 30 in class will help you.
