My granddaughter took the Kent 11+ and attained a score of 368 ( well over the 320 pass mark) her individual scores were Vr 141/141, Maths 125/141 and English 104/141. Unfortunately 2 short of the pass mark. I believe Her Headteacher would have received the result at the beginning of October to collate the evidence to show she has always worked above her levels and the mark for English did not reflect this. This would then go to the Headteachers Panel to hopefully review the result. The headteacher states that she only received the e-mail at the same time as my granddaughter got her results on the 12th Oct. She sent off an appeal e-mail that day but was told it was too late. How do I find out the date that the email was sent to the headteacher saying my granddaughter was a borderline fail and needed a Headteachers Review.? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Is your daughter at a primary school in Kent?

I’d imagine as it’s East Sussex that the head isn’t used to the procedure. I’m pretty sure in Kent you can’t challenge the HTA process but what you can do is individually appeal to the school/s you are interested in, and explain that the head appealed too late.

If you can get the head to attend the individual appeal in person this adds weight to your argument. You will need to put any schools you want to appeal for on your CAF. Ensure you also put on your CAF a non selective that you’d accept if you’re not successful. Then accept the School you’ve been allocated on 1st March and lodge appeals at the ones that you want. You can’t appeal for a school you haven’t listed on your CAF and you can’t be accepted for a grammar school in Kent on 1 March or go on a waiting list unless you have passed the Kent Test/ HTA review.

This sounds entirely right.
I don't think that complaining about a headteacher assessment - either because it didn't happen, or because it did happen and you didn't like the result - will achieve anything.

The answer is to go to appeal.

Thank you all for the advice and I will now work out just exactly what I am going to do.
