Yes. That is a good idea.

You need to answer the questions on the appeal form to provide detailed reasons for appealing. It is often easier to put these questions and the responses on a separate sheet (that you submit with the form) and write ‘See separate sheet headed Reasons for Appeal’ in the boxes on the form.

If the appeal includes sections B and F of an EHC plan (the special educational needs of your child and the provision to meet those needs), this must be made clear and the detail of the amendments requested given.

The SEND Tribunal may refuse to register an appeal if no grounds for the appeal to be made are properly identified on the appeal form.
