You may find last year's BCC appeals booklet helpful (but do bear in mind that some aspects of the process may change, given that Reviews were only held for the first time last year): http://www.buckscc.gov.uk/media/891226/ ... _guide.pdf
Please can you just confirm where/when I get the appeal papers from for the school and ourselves to fill in, do I request them from Bcc after March 3rd?
Yes. In the past, BCC sent a small supply of appeal forms to schools, but now the majority of cases are heard by SRPs, I doubt this happens any longer.
Also do I request the teachers fill in their bit, fill in my bit, tag on the extra paperwork for ds extenuating circumstances
The Head will have an e-copy of the Head Teacher's appeal summary sheet. They will complete that and give you a signed copy. You then write a covering letter and include copies of any further evidence you wish to include.
and then copy everything for each school I am appealing to
In the first instance you are appealing solely against non-qualification for any
Bucks grammar school, not named schools. If you win that battle, you are then appealing against over-subscription for each individual school.
Take a look at the Appeals Q&A http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeals/general
- you will find them helpful.
What stops a parent filling it in and pretending to be the head teacher? (Other than ethics).
As above: the school's evidence is provided on the Head's signed summary sheet and any further evidence is on headed paper.
