Help. Eldest daughter currently going through selection process for independant secondaries in North West. She's currently at State primary. We had an interview last week and at the end the head made the throwaway comment that my daughter's sats levels of 4c at end of yr 5 would definitately be at least 4as by yr 6. Problem is, daughter achieved all 4bs or 5s at end of year 5!!!
Have spoken to her current head, who shrugged & suggested not much difference
. Spoke to teacher who wrote report. It is her first year teaching yr6. Very anti independant schools. She said she had decided what level child was 'guaranteed' to get in sats, and then taken 2 levels off
Obviously, if child goes up 3 levels this will all be down to her fabulous teaching!
How do I point this out to the schools she is interviewed out, without sounding like a pushy parent? The school she really wants is interviewing on Friday and I'm worried that they will think she is less capable than she really is, based on this report.
Any help please.
