Apart from nerves +++ there are no extenuating circumstances on the day. However the cohort of children in her class are predominately very disruptive and difficult. The teaching they have received since year R has been debatable due to far too much time spent trying to instill discipline and get bottoms on seats!! Does this count as extenuating circumstances?
Yes, but keep it brief, because the emphasis ought to be on her academic strengths.
Her Year 6 teacher does feel that she would thrive in GS but would be in the bottom set for maths!!
I like to see words such as 'thrive'!
