It's a tad late and I'm a bit goosed so I'm not staying on too long but I really need to say a mega thanks to ClarityOf Mind and everyone else who contributed to my thread last night regarding my appeal today.http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/518386/a-long-shot-anyone-ever-been-to-an-?page=4
To everyone, your advice, comments and best wishes were all spot on and very much appreciated. I wnet to the appeal today with much more confidence knowing the prep work I had done was along the correct lines. Many thanks for sharing your experiences, some of which were personal and many thanks to those who gave other forms of advice.
To let you know, the appeal went very well, in fact, as well as it probably could have done and much better than I thought.. The panel commented on the comprehensive nature of my presentation of my side of the case and were very empathetic of my daughter's school situation. They said it was the most convincing and direct prsentation thay had heard for some time. Even the representative of the local school (the head) has offered her help if the appeal panel's decision doesn't go our way!
They let us know the decision by post in the next week (post strikes permiting!) so it's now a case of keeping everything crossed!
Thanks guys once again - very helpful & a true credit to this site as always.
