I have called TLEA & AGGS and am not getting anywhere! Theres no point in creating unnecessary stress and work complaining to TLEA, firstly i do not recall the lady i spoke to, as it was over a year ago and secondly it will not make any difference as the policy is set by AGGS. In addition to this the man who i spoke to in the ed sect has left and my file is missing!! the only proof i have is the email i wrote to him (i have already forwarded it on to AGGS).
I agree with you. With the benefit of hindsight it helps to have everything in writing."Everyone should take great care in all their dealings with officialdom. When making phone calls to the admission authority, make a note of the date and time, what was said, and who you spoke to. Try to get everything confirmed in writing or by email. Keep copies of all correspondence."http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... -school#c3
Do you know how many appeals have been succesful in the past and how many girls have been offered places on a second round?
I'm afraid not, but you can put the first question to the school, and the second to the LA.
Even if you start off on the phone, you may need to follow up in writing, and it's important to be very specific about the information required. For example:
Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 I am writing to request the following information with regard to the XYZ School:
a) the number of admission appeals heard for entry into year 7 in each of the last five years, and
b) the number of those appeals that were successful in each year.
If you do not hold the above data, I should be grateful if you could advise who does.
Thank you for your kind assistance.
