I'm sorry to hear your news. Your first step is to see the Head and find out how strongly they will support a review. What recommendation did they give? Are reports showing above expectations?

Do check the difference between a review and an appeal.

I suggest you ask for this to be moved to the appeals section.

Oh my gosh, that is unbelievably close! I did read that all scores would be rounded down.

Best of luck

In the past we have seen a few 120.xx scores for Bucks. From memory they work out in the end.

Headteacher not available till Tuesday (more waiting - which I'm going to need to get used to!)

All of his year 5 tests have been at greater depth. He's in a gifted and talented English and science group. You would expect the HT would support us.

Firstly, well done to your child on such a good score.

Rounding down has to be done I'm afraid. It's a bit like ages, where you don't turn 21 until the day itself and are still 20 the day before.

There are lots of us on here who will help you through the process, so try not to rush into things. Have a thorough read of the appeal/review advice and come back with questions.

Does it say in the letter where/how to get a review pack? Some years you've had to e-mail and ask for one.

Yes. Says to see the headteacher. So Tuesday we'll see her.

Opinions needed. Do we go to the Aylesbury Grammar school open day on Monday with our DS? We hadn't been yet just in case he didn't pass and although he didn't pass you couldn't get much closer! Unsure on what to do.
Thanks
