Is there any evidence that school work was affected during the four month period? It might be rather difficult to argue that grandmother's death affected the outcome of the selective test but nothing else.
Hi Etienne This is my problem as far as I know there was not a blip as I had no notification of any problems from his teacher. We thought it better he attended school and he has great peer support which helped him through it. I will check as with most schools parents eve coming up. I have a Doctors letter to say our family had a bereavement as I personally attending the Doctors at that time for advice but the content is a bit weak as she did not elaborate.
