Thanks for that advice SSSMM. I will have support from primary school detailing academic ability and suitability for grammar school but I think what occurred was maladministration which by seeing the log I would have "proper" proof other than anecdotal evidence.
I'm doing this appeal by power of Google so anything I'm saying is by putting 2 and 2 together from the Internet. Please, anyone feel free to point me in the right direction if I've got it wrong
What I'm seeming to find is that maladministration would be the first thing that would be considered by an appeal, followed by proof of academic suitability and then mitigating circumstances.
If I can't see the report then I fail to understand how I can fairly appeal. The appeals process says that I need to submit everything to be referred to on the day with in my appeal and gives a date for closure of appeals.
It would seem to me that if the school only bring the report to the appeal, that isn't correct as it is evidence that the panel should have seen, considered and digested before the appeal time?
Any advice is always gratefully received if there are other thoughts?
