I can't see anything concrete on their website about whether an EHCP over-rides the 11+


Their admissions policy states:

"Children who qualify and who have statements of Special Educational Needs or Education, Health and Care
Plans, that name the school will be admitted prior to the application of the admission rules."

It looks like your DC will need to gain a qualifying score. The named school EHCP will simply place them at the top of the list for the allocation of places. That said the named school EHCP may help at an appeal.

Again, happy to stand corrected on this.

They could be deemed qualified in a review or an appeal.

I’m guessing one would need to put forward some alternative academic evidence such as ed psych assessment reports in this instance...

He's yr6. And yes I know the process that should be followed, but it hasn't.

For the avoidance of doubt - I don't want him to go there! However, it would be cheaper for the LA to send him there rather than the specialist school he is currently in. The only thing I can think of is that they are mixing up the types of grammar schools. In Herts (where we are) there are no pure grammar schools, only semi-selective schools, so it's possible that they haven't realised that they are different in Bucks. I'm sure CGS will put them right :D

I seem to be excelling in getting into situations which no-one has come across before :lol:

Ah...makes sense...we are probably used to assuming all parents are trying to get their child into a grammar school on this site...rather than working hard to avoid.... :lol:

I thought he must be in Year 5 - why is this all so late?

Then why have you requested for the school to be named on the EHCP :? Would it not make more sense to name a school that you do want your DC to go to?

My assumption is that Louey didn't ask for CGS to
be named?

Imagine the excitement you would generate on this site, if you had found a back door :)

Good luck Louey.
