However she had never seen the form from the Bucks CC site before, and mentioned that as we are OOC many of the sections don't apply!
Looking at the form, I really can't see very much that an OoC head couldn't fill in!
section A - 11+ test results (they can ignore)
section 2 - OoC recommendation (replaces section 1 which is for BCC and partner schools)
section 3 - KS2 levels (all schools, unless independent)
section 4 - other tests if available (schools may or may not do them - it has nothing to do with being OoC)
section 5 - curriculum report (all schools)
section 6 - anything the school knows about extenuating circumstances (all schools - presumably if a child had a broken arm, they would notice?)
section 7 - how strongly does the school support this appeal? (all schools)
That should be almost 100% then ...... ?
She is quite young, July, but from what I've read all that is not a valid reason due to the standardisation.
Agreed - but if nearer the date of the hearing you have evidence of recent rapid progress, the maturity argument could be used!
