The current levels would help - they show he is still improving - in Bucks you can take additional info with you to the appeal if you take enough copies - is this a possibilty?
My feeling abut the Y5 report is take it all and highlight the relevant - academic eveidence - if you only submit 'bits' they might infer the rest is worse than it is! Only my feeling - perhaps Etienne will be along to give her opinion.
From DfES statitistics in education:
KS1 2003 % reaching level 3 in TESTS:
Teacher assessments 2003 % level 3:
Speaking & Listening: 24%
Thanks for those percentages, I've found his Y2 report but it only shows level 2A for maths which is slightly above national expected average, he did get a level 3, but this was for speaking and listening (teacher assessment). I think we'll just have to go along with the little evidence we have and be as honest and straightforward as we can. Can I just ask, are you a teacher or do you have anything to do with the appeals procedure? You seem to know what you'r talking about.
