Our DS got 117 in the 11 Plus. We felt that we had a decent case on the appeal process as he is Dyslexic and Dyspraxic. We felt that we had a decent case with all the supporting documents. We got a supporting letter from the headmaster of 2.2.

We were disappointed when the Selection Review Process said that they said they will keep to their decision.

1 of the Grammar Schools was through the county, and the other was direct with the school.

The county will hear the appeal case in 2 weeks.

We have just received received a letter from the School, stating that the hearing will take part in 2 stages. Stage 1 is they will hear how the SRP was fair, consistent and objective. If we are successful in that then they will listen to stage 2.

I am happy to argue my DS's case on why I feel that he is capable and to demonstrate why he should be in Grammar. But how, can I argue if the SRP was fair, consistent and objective.

I am at a loss and I would like to get some advise on what next?

Thanks

Stressed Parent

HI - there is a bit here about things to consider when considering whether the review was FCO:

We have the notes from the clerk. There is only 2 lines in the notes. There is no other information. The notes are just points read from the documents provided.

I do not know if the SRP was done correctly. I feel that this is an extra hurdle for us to overcome. Why would they want us to argue on the SRP process and not on the issues regarding our child.

This process is not fair because now we need to prove the SRP is fair before we prove our child is capable.

I do not know who in the Review Panel read the documents. I do not know how long they took. I do not know what they said about my child.

How do I go into a meeting and argue that the SRP was not Fair, Consistent or Objective.

I can argue on my child, but being honest, I can not argue on the process being right or wrong. I was not allowed in the review process by design.

Was the reason for an appeal was to give your case.

If this is the case, were we doing our DS a grave injustice by going in for the review process. We should have done the appeal and then pray he would get a seat through over subscription. Where is this fair on either case?

I am not sure what to do? What would people advise we can do? What do we say?

Or is it the end of the road because of the process?

I suggest that you read this thread very carefully - I think it will answer many, if not all of your concerns: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=31030
