Hi Cindy

That's more the spirit!

You are entirely capable of putting together an appeal for your son. You know him best, and your first post on this thread tells me that you can "sell him" to an appeal panel very well.

Keep coming back to us and we will provide you with everything we can to help you. I won't be as bold as to say "everything you need", but we will do what we can.

All the best
Sally-Anne

I was advised by Christophers form teacher to do a personal profile for him
and that the teacher would do an academic appeal and the headteacher
would give his next predicted scores.

I have so far done an appeal using past academic evidence as he has only been at this school for a year and a bit,

I dont really know if a personal profile will be useful, as it is not hard evidence, or if I did what would I put?

Dear cindy

Perhaps a list of schools attended with dates? (Could be useful evidence of disruption if there have been a lot of changes.)

Perhaps the KS1 results? (Especially if they were above average.)

Might be worth having another word with the form teacher to check exactly what he had in mind and why.

Regards

I don't know about Kent, but I suspect they would resist letting you have the original papers.


Might be worth asking - I believe (but cannot be sure) that in Lincs. it has been known for an appellant to be permitted to see the original papers, though I think not to take them away or copy them.

I have heard of someone who got a copy of the original test paper 3 years ago... its turned out they they missed a box half way through the paper and then all question were out of line....

they passed the appeal because of it... so you never know

forgot to add they were in Kent (maidstone)

you are both all so helpful.

I shall add the dates. Christopher was at a private school yrs 2,3,and 4
and scored six level 3's in KS1, the rest were 2's
Christopher was then home schooled by me.!? for approx five months
until going to his present school, this was due to a proposed relocation. Christopher is a sensative, deep thinking and studious child, extremly
well spoken, I took my time selecting his current school to minamise his possible chances of confontation situations.

At the school he has now been allocated he would be 'eaten alive' and he would just stand there and take it. If allowed to work in an arena of little distraction, he will continue to acheive.


I actually think the teacher is minded to agree with me, that I am not the best person to put Christophers appeal forward, so I think he has taken charge, and is just trying to make me feel useful! However I shall meet him again tomorrow.

another question please,

I put Christopher's selection down as three grammer schools, as he was expected to sail through, we were also advised to do this by his school. I DO NOT blame the school for this advice.

However, I dont understand, If suppose the three schools that I listed were full, what would happen then. How can I now make a contigency plan, if the appeal fails??

Thank you so much
