Children take the 11+ grammar school test which is generally conducted in September with results available before the deadline for CAF application which is the 31st of October. However, this year due to COVID-19 most of the test dates have been moved to mid or end of October with results being announced towards the end of November.
A child will be considered for a place at a selective grammar
school not only by achieving the qualifying standard score but also
to include the school as a preferred choice on the CAF through the
local authority. Therefore, without the 11+ selective grammar
school test results available, it will be difficult to include the
choices in the CAF before the deadline of 31st October. Some
councils have either increased the number of choices to 5 "or" gave
an opportunity to amend the school choices in December, 2020 after
the selective school test results have been declared.
Therefore, we kindly request Bristol City Council to either increase the number of school choices on CAF from 3 to 5 "or" give an opportunity to amend the school choices in December.
