Hi all,
I would greatly appreciate any advice that anyone can offer me. My child sat the 11+, offered 2nd choice BV, received confirmation via email, confirmed via phone with LEA and with BV school.
I chased LEA 5 days later to find out where my child was on the WL for 1st choice and was told that no school offer had been awarded ! I was totally gob smacked. I was advised via phone by LEA that an error had been made. I had no school offer.

Any advice what I should do???

Where is your son on the waiting list and what did he score ? What is your first choice ?

OP, I am very sorry to hear this.

What did the LEA say when they spoke to you on the phone? Did they not set out any steps they would take to resolve your problem?

Do you know who made the mistake? As far as you are aware, did your DS meet the eligibility criteria for BV? Do you know what mistake is supposed to have been made - eg, that they did not receive your acceptance, or they should not have made the offer in the first place, or something else?

This must be very distressing for you and I hope it can be resolved quickly.

Did you apply under the Pupil Premium category? 204 appears to be the cut-off score for pupil premium applications, but is a long way short of the cut-off otherwise.

What has the LEA advised you to do about getting a place? They are obliged to offer you a school place of some sort, they can't just make a mistake and leave you without one, but they don't necessarily need to offer you a place at one of the schools you named on your CAF if your child doesn't meet the eligibility criteria.

This sounds very stressful.

At 204 I assume your child has Pupil Premium eligibility to have been offered the place.
Did Bishop Vesey send you a confirmation letter with the forms to hand in to confirm your place?

In the first instance, have you had a look at the Appeals section?
https://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeals

Did you discover what the error was that led to you being offered Bishop Vesey only to have the offer withdrawn?

Do you still have a place at the school you were originally offered?

My appeal will be lodged due to my daughter been eligible under the ppg and that I have believe that my son should be aswell.

I am not sure what evidence to take with to the appeal.

My daughters school have provided a letter stating that she is a PPG student, my son's school have provided a letter stating that they believe that he would have been eligible due to the fact that my daughter was.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

My first choice was QM Boys

2nd BV -- place was withdrawn due to admin error


As ToadMum says above, you really need to put this thread on the appeals page as they are more qualified to assist you.
