What would be the purpose of this?
I imagine they were just trying to understand your family circumstances. It's perhaps of more relevance for primary appeals - the problems you might have in getting different children to schools that are far apart.
I was also asked what schools were put on the CAF and which school she had been offered. I'm not very good at lying so I was completely honest with the panel
I think you were right to be honest, but it's best to go on to say why the school being appealed for is a much better match for your child.
