Hi. What a fantastic website. When my DS unexpectedly failed his Kent Test, we decided to appeal. We know it is a long draw out process but feel it is worth a try. He achieved VR 128, NVR 130 and Maths 107.
He told us that he ran out of time on the Maths paper and had to guess 13 questions!
As I understand it, we can appeal for both grammar schools we put down on the CAF, which is what we are going to do. The headteachers' appeal failed as they felt his Maths work did not come up to test standard but he is predicted 5c at end of KS2 SAT's.
Anyway, we intend to send off the two appeal forms this week but are unsure what evidence to send with it. We will be sending numerous test scores provided by his school and letters from the head and class teacher (who incidentally strongly advised us to appeal)
Can we take evidence such as school reports to the appeal or does it all have to be sent now? I am confused as KCC said to send it all off together and I am worried about getting it all ready B4 the deadline of 25th March. I want to send it asap.
Many thanks for any advice. Is it worth us appealing? I am usually very level headed but this has turned me into a nervous wreck as I am sure it has others in my situation!
