Would my daughter being a young carer classify as exceptional grounds for appeal?

What year are you appealing for?

Is there an exceptional social/medical criteria in the admissions criteria for the school, and did you apply using it?

Sorry for the questions but these are relevant! Different year groups have different appeals regulations if the class sizes are 30.

Practical experience of being on panels would say that panel members would be as sympathetic as is possible to a young carer as they do recognise the stress and extra work that this puts on what is a very young person. There is never a guarantee of success but I would definitely go to an appeal pushing the need for a specific school because they are a young carer. But they will need to be assured that this is genuine, so can you produce written evidence that they are a young carer.
