I have looked and can’t find the answer so I apologise in advance.

I’m appealing due to oversubscription (I actually put this school lower down on the SCAF) but have changed my mind since so appealing for a place.

Do I need a headteacher letter for oversubscription. As she passed the test, they know her ability etc - the head is also new so doesn’t really know my daughter.

Any advice would be great!

Thank youuuuu

Headteachers often rely on the Y5/Y6 class teacher for their information.

No, it's not necessary, unless perhaps:
(a) places have been allocated in score order, and you want to argue that your child - though qualified - was expected to score more highly
or
(b) the school is in a position to support one or more of your reasons for wanting a place
      Quote:
      For example, there might be strong evidence from the primary school .... that (1) there is a history of the child having been seriously bullied, (2) all the bullies will be going to the allocated school, and (3) this is a vulnerable child who needs the support of friends, all of whom will be going to the school being appealed for.
