So she is working above expectations of yr 5 in reading, science and maths and in line with expectations in writing and speaking and listening. She is in top group for everything but is in mid set within the high group for writing and s&l.
People in my area have suggested that there is little chance if she has had no tutoring and isn't in the very top sets for everything.
People in your area may also have children, relatives and the children of better friends sitting the test. One competitor less is one less to worry about.
Or they may have chosen a different route for their child for good reason and think it would be fine for yours too. Admitting that you should try for a grammar school might seem disloyal to their own child.
Is your daughter aware of the grammars? Does she know anyone there? Is SHE at all interested in going to a grammar school? If so, give it a go, but definitely do some timed papers at home to get her used to the technique. I drew a bell curve for DD to explain the odds and that she'd still be fine and do well somewhere else. She understood that and chose to give it a shot on that basis. Say nice things about loads of schools, so she knows the advantages of each one. Keep negatives to yourself about any school there's any chance you'll be allocated.
