I'll do my best Etienne.......
Without writing a long essay, if a child was training at a high level for an outside activity from school (National level) in the lead up to the 11+, would this information be suitable to put on the review form for appeal? Personally my dd was coping well with nerves and the extra hours that she was putting in for her outside activity but maybe I underestimated the pressure of it all happening at the same time. Competition was 4 days after the 2nd test and she was training throughout. I did think that doing the extra hours would take her mind off the 11+ but with only 2 marks short maybe it did have an affect?
Briefly, in my message re the school and it's recent report, is it worth mentioning or not? DD would have required the extension of work but this was a failing at the school. In the HT's summary it does mention that dd rised to the challenges offered to her and seeking her own extension work. Not sure what to do on that one.
Thanks again for all your advice, I do appreciate it
