In preparing my dd appeal I realise that I need to understand a few things better:

1. The appeal is to an independent panel? If so then I would be wrong to state "your school" ?

2. Should I include a copy of the HT appeal? Information here seems to offer different views:

"The panel may ask if a HT appeal was made so be prepared with an answer."

"Incidentally, the HT advised us not to send in a copy of his appeal as they would then know it had failed! Very wise advice and so we just took information from it and added any additional evidence."


3. What is the process? If the panel approve the appeal do they instruct the school to provide my daughter with a place?

4. Should I include copies of her entire sats progress (school has provided these) or wait until a hearing is provided?

5. There was a writing element to the 11+ yet this is not scored? Is it a factor in the grading?

Many thanks for any help

2. Should I include a copy of the HT appeal? Information here seems to offer different views: I suggest not, but you could take it with you in case it's needed.

"The panel may ask if a HT appeal was made so be prepared with an answer."

"Incidentally, the HT advised us not to send in a copy of his appeal as they would then know it had failed! Very wise advice and so we just took information from it and added any additional evidence."


3. What is the process? If the panel approve the appeal do they instruct the school to provide my daughter with a place? Yes, unless non-qualification is being dealt with first, and oversubscription comes later.

4. Should I include copies of her entire sats progress (school has provided these) or wait until a hearing is provided? I would submit everything you have available now. That doesn't stop you submitting any additional information nearer the date of the hearing.

5. There was a writing element to the 11+ yet this is not scored? Is it a factor in the grading? It is up to the panel to decide what weight to give to any evidence, but if there is no score for the writing element, I don't quite see how this could count.

Many thanks for any help


Hope this is of some assistance.

Know the feeling! - will be glad when we have been able to put our views forward, and maybe I'll get some more shut eye. Still thanks to this forum I do feel that my arguments are becoming more focused and cogent.
Hope you managed to get some sleep
Enjoy the snow today, -I do try to forget about all this during the day, but am finding it very hard.
Best wishes
Bougalou :) :o
