I'm in similar situation to Gilly10 in that unsure and slightly confused about Selection Review and/or Appeal as there is no exceptional circumstances for us to detail.
There's a bit more - but not much - about extenuating circumstances here:http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... aneous#e33
The headteachers manual does state: “The SRP [selection review panel] will normally expect there to be strong evidence of both high academic ability and exceptional reasons for underperformance in the tests.”
not sure or have seen how the Head Teacher deals with appeals (asking for appointment this week).
We suspect most primary headteachers will be advising parents to go to review simply because “that’s the system”!
There's no difference in what headteachers have to do for a review or appeal - they have to fill in the same form. ( You will find a link to the form in E33.)
On practical side how does this affect the CAF? As we have to submit the form before we know the outcome would we still put down our choice GS in Bucks where technically DS has not qualified?
Good question - we've added this point to the Q&As:http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... aneous#e35
