Welcome to Appeals!
Have you followed the links to reviews/appeals in Sally-Anne's post?viewtopic.php?f=12&t=48535
- they scored her a 2:1
This could be all right, but it depends how many of the '2' recommendations qualified. The panel will look at how reliable/realistic the school's overall recommendations have been.
- her CATS in year 4 and year 5 were all above 120
How far above?
(The upper 120s might be 'safe'.)
- she got level 3's in all of her year 2 SATS
- the was on the gifted and able register for English and Maths in KS1
Depends entirely on the standard within the school. Does it achieve highly?
- her reading age in year 5 was 4 years above her actual age
Good, although some reading tests seem to give erratic results.
we don't have any extenuating circumstances
As you realise, with such a low score this is going to be difficult.
I'm trying to get my head around what sort of evidence you could use to prove that a review wasn't fair and consistent. I'm not sure how to deal with this side of things so I'm worried about jeopardising a further appeal.
If you follow the links mentioned earlier, you will know how to tackle FCO.
Finally, is it worth mentioning that my daughter DIDN'T have any outside tutoring ...... ??
Absolutely not. How would you prove a negative?
