I have an Appendix from my previous appeal which states 'Panel members are reminded that weight should not be attached to whether or not a Headteacher made representations on a child's behalf.'
It also states that if a Head Teacher Appeal did take place, that it can be taken into account as evidence.
My child was not put forward for a Head Teachers Appeal. Does this mean that the Panel can not make any reference to that fact or ask me or the Head (if she is there), as to why he wasn't put forward for appeal?
That would be my understanding.
and if they are not allowed to question that, what should i say if they do?
You should say "I don't know" - and make a mental note that, if unsuccessful at appeal, you might have grounds for taking your case to the ombudsman or EFA!
