Hello, Bo Peep
The panel is independent of the LEA, so if it started in any way to reflect the views of the authority, that could raise some serious questions about impartiality ........

You are appealing for
the school you want, you are not appealing against
It would not be unreasonable for the panel to ask in general terms what your alternatives are, but in my view it would be improper for them to ask you loaded questions such as the above.
Hope this provides some reassurance!
