Hi, having received the dreaded no pass last week I have been trawling this site ever since and must thank all for the wealth of information available.
So my daughter sat the Kent test and had a decent aggregate score of 334 but missed the Maths by 3 scoring 103 when needing 106 min. The Head teacher appealed prior to us getting the results and from what I can gather put together a good case for which we are very grateful, this was refused because they felt her English was not up to the required standard for GS despite the fact that she passed the English. Q, is this normal to asses a subject that she has not failed?
We have made our minds up to appeal, do you know if we will we need to provide evidence for her English and Maths at the appeal despite the fact that it was the maths paper she missed?
I have heard this reason for a Headteacher appeal failing on a fair few occasions, we were given the same reason as were at least 5 others that I know of in the past few years.
Definitely go to appeal with such a close score - nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Which school(s) are you appealing to? If you don't mind saying, you may get people come along that have appealed for these specific schools and they may be able to give you some ideas/help for how their appeals went.
