Dear Sally-Anne and Etienne,
My DS has not yet taken 11+ exam and I am still trying to get my head around the entire process, reviews and appeals included. As far as I understood, at the moment the parents are advised to include achieved and "working at" levels (as early as KS1 results) as a part of academic evidence. With the changes to the NC, the current year 2 and 6 are the only ones that would be assessed using the "old" levels and sublevels. For the other years, it is up to individual schools how they assess them. I am wondering about the effect these changes are going to have on the academic evidence. Will the absence of national levels make the evidence look more subjective and weaken the case?
Kind regards,
justanothermother

I'm not sure appeal panels will have given any thought to this yet, but in due course they will no doubt take it in their stride!

They are used to taking the academic evidence as it comes.
For example, they already have to cope with:

    • no NC levels at all for some children who are home-schooled, or from independent schools, or from abroad.
    • no CAT scores from some schools.
    • no headteacher recommendations from some out county schools.
    • inconsistent headteacher recommendations from in county schools.
    • some parents provide school reports. Some don't.
    • some parents provide an ed. psych report. Some don't.
    • some parents provide school work. Some don't.

An appeal panel has to manage with whatever evidence is available!

Thank you for your reply Etienne!
I'll search the threads for appeals from parents with home-schooled children.
