Will schools have an opportunity to feedback/review the test and its impact?
I feel sure primary heads in Bucks could make their views known.
Will Bucks CC look at a school and assess the massive drop in pass rate yr/yr whilst SATs remain similar yr/yr?
The problem is that BCC aren't really in charge of the 11+ any longer - the grammar schools are (and they're answerable to the DfE who are not particularly interested in the 11+).
At an official level, schools tend to be judged by their position in the league tables rather than by their 11+ results.
Why have the panel not looked to see that the Headteachers recommendations have been accurate before.
There's so little time allowed for each review, I doubt it would be practical. In theory it might be possible for an appeal, but I can't see it happening - they would need not only the previous results, but presumably whether there had been a change of headteacher, change of year 6 teacher, any other special circumstances .......
Although I don't expect to have a reply to our individual case, is there anywhere I can write to and air these views?
There was a time when you could have complained to your county councillor. Not now!
You could ask whether your headteacher or one of the parent governors will be raising concerns.
Some of these points could be raised at an appeal.
