Could someone please explain what this all means with regard to ranking etc by HT?
This is the procedure in Bucks. The headteacher has to assess each candidate, using the following grades:
1= exceptionally highly recommended (predicted score 131-141)
2= highly recommended (121-130)
3= recommended with reservations (111-120)
4= not recommended for grammar school (101-110)
5= definitely not recommended (69-100)
Those with grades 1-3 are put on a list in order of merit (the "rankings" or order of suitability). The list is sent to the Local Authority before
the results of the 11+ are known.
