What influence do headteachers in Bucks have over the appeals process? Are there any alternatives to meeting with them if you want to lodge an appeal.
Our son's headteacher has inferred he will not say our son is suitable for grammar school if he misses two days of school in the next three weeks.
I suppose that your son's headteacher wants to discourage pupils from taking a holiday after the 11+ hard work. It may just be an empty threat, but whether is is or not, it is - in my opinion - an unforgivable thing to say.
The head recommendation is very important for appeals.
