if I didn't go for review couldn't appeal because what would I be appealing for as gs wouldn't know of her application to them as she didn't pass 11+.
The LA will be co-ordinating the allocation of places, and the GS will be on your CAF.
Also I too don't know when and how to appeal
It's in our Q&As:http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... cation#b51
Have read appeals code and that states if review is unsuccessful an appeal will only look into whether it was conducted in a fair objective manner and nothing else
The Appeals Code also states:
3.13 An appeal panel may be asked to consider an appeal where the appellant believes that the child did not perform at their best on the day of the entrance test. In such cases:
a) where a local review process has not been applied, the panel must only uphold the appeal if it is satisfied:
i) that there is evidence to demonstrate that the child is of the required academic standards, for example, school reports giving Year 5/Year 6 SAT results or a letter of support from their current or previous school clearly indicating why the child is considered to be of grammar school ability; and
ii) where applicable, that the appellant’s arguments outweigh the admission authority’s case that admission of additional children would cause prejudice.
Contrast this with:
b) where a local review process has been followed, the panel must only consider
whether each child’s review was carried out in a fair, consistent and objective way and if there is no evidence that this has been done, the panel must follow the process in paragraph 3.13(a) above.
Exactly what we have been saying on here ..........
