Hi all. Hope you are all well and not too stressed. Well we have our first appeal next week and are getting ready with our presentation and collating our copies of all the evidence we have sent in. I assume the panel members will be given a copy of all our evidence (heads letter etc) but will take extra copies in case.
Anyway, I need some advice on whether to take in examples of DS books. His teacher gave me his current Maths, English and Science books but I am not sure whether to take them becuase, although the work is good in the majority of cases, some of the work is untidy and not up to his best ( what a harsh nother I am!). The Headteachers' appeal failed on his presentation of work and I am afraid that although I can direct the panel to look at good examples of work, with post-it notes etc, they may well look through the whole book.
He also has a folder of mental arithmetic tests and achieves Level 5 on all of these bar 1 or 2 but they are marked by him so I assume they will not be taken seriously.
Anybody else had experience of taking in books and whether they count as good evidence. We have all his predicted SATs, CATs, approval letters from the school etc, so this may be enough.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
