Requesting for an option to change Secondary school choices for Coventry residents after Warwickshire 11+ 2021 entry exam results are published

We the undersigned petition the Council to give an option to Coventry residents/parents to change secondary school choices after Warwickshire 11plus 2021 entry exam results are published in mid-December (as per Warwickshire council) Other Councils have changed their policies due to Covid situation by either giving parents an option to alter the choices after the grammar school exam results are published or by increasing the number of school choices.

As this year's Warwickshire 11 plus 2021 entry exam is postponed to November 7 & 8- 2020 (due to the current COVID-19 pandemic) which is past the cut-off date 31/10/2020 for secondary school applications, parents will have to choose 3 schools without knowing the results of the 11 plus exam. Children from Coventry who have been aspiring and working hard to get into grammar schools are not able to choose the best possible school after knowing their scores.
Therefore, we humbly request the council to make changes to the policies to ensure that children from Coventry are being given a fair chance at education.
