I am wondering how much information I need to give on the initial appeal form? Do I just state the facts and expect to be allowed to elaborate at the hearing? http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeals/general#a43
Do I need to mention that DS was level 3A for Maths and 3C in all other subjects at the end of Key Stage 2 to show consistency or are the appeals board only interested in more recent information.
It's up to you to put forward what you think are his strengths.
I would have thought recent information is always going to be more important - but individual panel members might well be interested in consistency, and it certainly won't do any harm to mention it.
(Appeal panels vary! It's difficult to know what a particular panel will focus on.)
I've seen mention of parents obtaining an Educational Psychologist Report which, from what I can gather provides evidence of reasoning ability. However, CSSE removed the VR paper this year so I am wondering whether this is something that would hold any weight at an appeal or not?
An EP report covers NVR as well. Would that be relevant?http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... ication#b3
I'm afraid Essex appeals aren't easy to win, although there have been some successes.viewtopic.php?f=15&t=19293
