Hi, thank you v much for your quick response,
I was hoping to use the 11 plus as evidence..... If I could show that he did well in what he actually answered. However it looks like I won't be able to get hold of the papers to prove that he didn't answer over half of the paper.
You have no legal right to see the papers, but you could try asking under the Data Protection Act for confirmation that he didn't answer over half the paper.
Here is a specimen letter which you could adapt:http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... cation#b47
You should also try asking (under the Data Protection Act) for a copy of that part of the invigilators log that refers to your son.
His school don't like to talk about the 11 plus so might not get support there. http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... cation#b20
I'm worried about extenuating circumstances as we don't have a good reason why he had meltdown other than pressure on the day.
For your written submission in March just stick to the facts of what happened, and provide the evidence.
Will year 6 sats results come out too late to be any use?
Probably. It depends how late in the summer term your appeal is - but in any case we're not sure that the new reporting system for year 6 SATs will be of much help.
