The appeals for all 'Slough' GS's have been opaque for years..... unlike the Bucks system.
First Herschel...... now Slough. It is probably only the reticence of parents, or their lack of knowledge of the appeals system, that has prevented more complaints going to the ombudsman.
Let's hope that this helps improve the sytem for future years.
I think the Slough schools believe they are a law unto themselves, myself - I also think it is the same panel who hear apeals for all schools in the area, certianly it seems to be the same clerk.....not that I am biased or anything
