Hi everyone, I was hoping to get some advice from you especially from any Primary School teachers. My son is seven and born at the end of July. A year and a half ago we moved from Scotland to England (where they start formal education a year later) and my daughter who is very bright needed some extra tuition to catch up on some of the work she had missed; she then did really well in her SAT tests and is fine at High School. Last year my son seemed to be doing well with good reports and lots of rewards for effort and work. He has moved into Year 3/4 with a new teacher and things have gone downhill. We haven't had much contact from the school so assumed everything was ok and then they rang and spoke to my husband. They have concerns particularly about his writing (he is very good at Maths and excellent verbally) and also his social development as he often gets angry and upset and is unable to calm down. I am a HOD in a large secondary school and am at work a lot where as my Husband is stays at home. We have now received a letter saying that they are referring him to the SEN department. There is nothing specific in the letter and it is very vague, I am obviously unable to get an appointment until January where I will be able to meet with the SENCO but not with my child's teacher ( as he takes them swimming the only morning the SENCO is in) I would really prefer to meet with both in order to get the bigger picture. I have spoken to my son and he says that the older kids are constantly making comments and he comes back regularly from school with bangs, bruises and other accidents. (this could be perfectly innocent as he is very clumsy) So I am rather worried and am concerned that as one of the youngest in Year 3 he is having a tough time. He took his circuit board in the other week to show and tell and came back saying that all the other kids had learnt about that already, I think this will really effect his self-esteem if we can't get a handle on it. So what should I do? Are there any particular questions I need to ask? I really don't want him labelled if it is simply partially due to his age and the fact that we have moved education systems. I am happy to do anything we need to in order to improve the situation for him. Many thanks for reading!
