    We have been told that children with Dyslexia who can't spell the words from year 3, 4, 5 and 6 cannot get higher than expected in writing. This is the case even if they have all the other standards.

    If all Heads complain do you think the STA (Gov) will change their minds?

    I've not heard that before, where's it come from?
    Is that if they have a diagnosis? What if they cant spell the words, get all the standards but are not diagnosed as dyslexic?

    Watch the ks2 webinar. They go over it a few times. Any children who can't spell the 3 4 words and some 5 6 words. Diagnosis or not can't go to expected.
