What SATs marks have you got to take with you? Preferably high level 5s?
Have you still got KS1 showing level 3s?
Any optional SATs in other years that were good?
It all shows consistency through out their education.
We took all school reports and school books, I read a few remarks from school reports saying "How bright a pupil she is". I made a point of telling them "I brought all year reports as we have had nothing but good comments throughout." (Everyone has the odd comment about talking or could try to be neater.)
The panel made it clear they couldn't assess work and school books as they were not qualified to do so. I would still take them as it proves you're not trying to hide anything from them.
You have substantially more than we did. Our head teacher informed us that a protocol had gone around all schools telling them they were not allowed to make comment, so I didn't have anything other than my daughter's marks/scores. (Later found out other head teachers had gone against this so called protocol and sent parents in with glowing letters.
Do you have anything in the way of mitigating circumstances as to why your child might not have achieved their full potential on the day?
A few other factors which may have helped us in our appeal was the school was under subscribed, although the LEA claim that doesn't make any difference as they are happy to leave places available.
Scooby just prepare yourself as best you can by asking questions and reading up as many different peoples experiences.
Then no matter what the outcome is you know you have given it your all.
I wish you all the best Scooby if you need anything just ask..
