Hi Vic, sorry you didn't get the result you expected. I found it was best to ask early and get prepared for the appeal asap. I am Bucks so can't offer any help, but I know that everyone on here really does their best to help :-) Good luck and I am sure someone in the know will be along soon.

Vic, did your DDs result go for a Head teachers assessment? I'm in a similar predicament and the wait till next year seems so far away.

You can read my thread here

viewtopic.php?f=35&t=44278&start=0

As there is a link to an faq which is useful.

hi Mr Grimes not sure until Monday but the head is very new to the school so not sure if she would due to not really knowing my daughter

Hiya, find my thread in the appeals section from last year, virtually the same situation. It has loads of info on it. Also see my outcome in the appeals section for details on past years etc. I'll see if I can link to them for you.

my thread..... viewtopic.php?f=35&t=39606

feedback thread link... viewtopic.php?f=35&t=9205 my write up is right near the end



I'm no expert on appeals but I'm happy to help having been where you are last year.

Have you looked at the FAQ on the appeal section of the forum? That's a good starting point.

I will move this post to appeals, where I am sure someone will be able to help. It's likely to get lost here on the Kent board.

Hello!
I am not an "expert" as such in appeal, but I am an expert parent as I had to appeal last year, and i went all the way with it, spending hours/days/months reading/researching for the appeal. It is a long process, but it is worth doing it. (we won the appeal).
I am happy to help/support if and when needed.
All the best.
