OMG - we won!!!!!!!!!! Am so very pleased for dd. This is the best thing that could have happened for her. I was a bundle of nerves on the day and ended up blubbing as I suspected I would. Oh well, it obviously didn't harm our case.
We've got dd1's appeal tomorrow morning and I'm feeling horribly nervous. This is the 2nd time we've appealed for the same school and the same reason (bullying) although this has escalated since last year. We haven't got medical back up just our own anecdotal evidence and school reports. I am so anxious for her as she is desperate to leave the school. In fact we have told dd that whatever the outcome she will be leaving the school but atm we don't know which school she will be going to. I am so heartbroken for her and every time I think about how she has been feeling it makes me very tearful. I am worried I am going to end up in floods of tears during the appeal and lose any credibility with the panel. Please help me to present the best possible case for her during the meeting.
