Morning All!
Now have a letter about our WGSB Appeal. It's in two parts? Looked here for info but it's quite general. Anybody have local advice or been to a two- stager? Do parents ask questions from the floor? Does it mean the panel won't discuss oversubsction in the second part when it's just us and the panel?
Thanks guys
Buck

Welcome! :)

Advice on appeals applies everywhere because it's a national system.

The only local difference is likely to be whether or not to have a grouped stage one with all the parents.

They must certainly be given the opportunity.
The normal agenda is:

Oversubscription/prejudice is the school's case, not yours!
It is dealt with at stage 1.

Stage 2 is your case. At stage 2 you counter the case for prejudice by putting forward your reasons for wanting or needing a place at the school.

The panel then has to decide (assuming the child is qualified) whether or not your reasons for wanting a place are strong enough to outweigh the school's case for prejudice.
