Thank you for your email to the Appeals Box.

Unfortunately the attachment came across as a "dat" file, so we can't open it. Please could you re-scan it and try to send it again?

That has come across as a PDF, thank you, but unfortunately there is only one page?

Thanks, safely received now.

It is quite hard to comment fully, because we only have partial information, but the HT's predictions for the end Y6 do look a tad optimistic in the light of the KS1 results and the general rate of progress in Y3 - Y5.

The Review panel does have the right to look at the predictions and decide if they are realistic or not. They will also know how accurate the Head Teacher's recommendations were overall. If, for example, your child was recommended as a 1:1, but few of the 1:1 recommendations qualified, the panel will take that into account because it would suggest that the Head does not really know the children particularly well.

You haven't mentioned what the 11+ score was, but the further away it was from 121, the more persuasive the evidence has to be. Any doubt about the evidence is likely to cause the panel to be more pessimistic.

Regarding your point that the review outcome isn't "fair", I hope that you have gleaned from reading Etienne's post that the word "fair" is used in the legal sense. In the context of a criminal trial, for example, the defendant is entitled to a "fair trial", i.e. one that is conducted in accordance with the law of the land, free from bias or outside interference. The process must be fair. If convicted of the crime, the defendant may well say "it's not fair", but if due process has been followed, they must accept the verdict and any sentence handed down to them. (Or appeal, of course.)

I'm not sure if that analogy helps?
