I have been posting in Medway and have been advised to put a post in here as I am going to need a lot of advice I feel.
My son did not pass. This was very unexpected taking into consideration mock papers which he passed, everything the school had told me about him and my own experiences preparing for this test with him.
He was kicked in the face during the break between paper 1 and paper 2 which resulted in a cut under his nose which broke the skin and is still there now although of course somewhat healed. I did not report it at the time as we didn't discuss it until almost back at the car after the test.
I am going to see his HT this morning and ask for an appointment to discuss this with a view to an appeal but other members have advised that a HT appeal may not be in our best interests.
For what it is worth I would like him to go to Chatham Grammar and he has a brother there. It is within walking distance of home.
I really need all advice and help you can give and please let me know if there is any other info you need.
