Hi

I posted previously stating that my son had been unable to take his test in September due to ill health. He has been given the opportunity to sit the alternative test in early May.

As was obvious, he was not allocated a Grammar place and so I am going through the appeals process

I spoke to his current headteacher last week to ask if she could give me a progress report for my son. She refused stating it was not a procedure the school got involved in. However, she did say that were the school in question to request this, she would reply accordingly.

I've lodged an appeal for WestCliff School for Boys and in the appeal paperwork they have sent to me they have stated that I should include all supporting documentation (including last school report and/or supporting letter from the child's current Headteacher.

Is this correct that the headteacher can refuse? I'm concerned that the appeal panel may not write to the school (assuming they say the onus is on us as parents to provide the letter) and as such this may impact on the outcome of the appeal.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

There is a specific section for appeals. You might be better posting there as there are several experts (inc Etienne) who help out in that part of the forum.

Have you read the 'stickies' on that section too? Lots of helpful advice on preparing for appeals.
