not appealing in the same area, but have also had one of my appeal dates - 1st May! -
I will also be going it alone, as I do not want my hubby to say anything wrong
Harsh I know, but as he is a builder (I am not a snob and there is nothing wrong with builders of course!!). He is not really hands on with my DD schooling and hasnt a clue regards SATs/KS2 results, I thought this would be best really. I have written down all the points relavant to my DD appeal and will be taking copies of the support letters that i sent in so i have everything in front of me.
Dont worry you will be fine, and I am sure that there will probably be others that will be going on their own for various reasons. I have spoken to other appealers from last year who say that the panel made them feel at ease and it was a fairly relaxed meeting.
So I wish you good luck x
