Re: 11+ exam review or appeal (special needs)

It's been a tough couple of weeks for us all, and trying to see the wood for the trees isn't easy I do sympathise. It's not straightforward - there's a lot for you to wrestle with. I like what the headteacher has written. Using a general ability index, which we have included, the score is 92% Inter...

Re: 11+ exam review or appeal (special needs)

I wonder based on this whether you consider this bears weight with the processes? Difficult to say. On the academic front, if it's a Bucks primary or partner school, the panel would know how many of the 1:1s qualified, and therefore how realistic the headteacher tends to be in assessing grammar sch...

Re: 12+ 2024 Bucks

Welcome! Is it impossible to get a space in year 8 at the Aylesbury GSs? ..... will there be places at our GSs? Or is it just the exceptional odd places here and there if you're exceedingly lucky? Chances are there may not be any vacancies - at least, not at first. According to the LA: "Our gra...

Re: Kent 11+ appeal and EHCP

@etienne Thank you for your prompt response, much appreciated. Please could you translate what does mean "There is no balancing of the case for the child against a school case for prejudice (as in a normal school admission appeal)"? As I wrote above, please ignore anything to do with &quo...

Re: Kent 11+ appeal and EHCP

Hi We would like to name a Kent grammar school in our EHCP but my DC's result was just off by a few marks on one of the tests even though the overall score was over the passmark, so the grammars will decline them. We have only just discovered a medical condition that will take 2-3 months to treat. ...

Re: Selection Review Bucks - Do we stand a chance?

Thanks Etienne, I did not get the appointment with HT to go through the EP report with her. Do I need any confirmation from HT /School that they have seen/checked it, in order to upload them in SR portal. No - it is entirely up to you what additional evidence, if any, you submit for the SR. Good lu...

Re: Selection Review Bucks - Do we stand a chance?

Bucks CC claim top 30% academic children suitable for grammar! But this misses the point that the Bucks test is standardised for the children who take it - it is not nationally standardised. Many Bucks children who are weakest academically may opt out, whereas very bright children from outside Buck...

Re: Bucks 11+ score of 116. Do we stand a chance?

Do you know how they assess credibility / realistic view of HT in such cases? I'm afraid they can't. HT has said No to this question as we had not reported anything. Does this have a big impact on our chances of success of selection review? It might have an impact. Their guidelines say they would n...

Re: Bucks Selection Review for low marks

Hi Etienne, His school report says:- .... Year 4- GDS Year 5/6- GDS Does this include Reading, Maths, and Writing? Is it clear what she is predicting for the end of KS2? She has also mentioned that she is very surprised that DS didn’t clear the exam as he is very capable and will flourish in a gram...
