As some of you may already know I am currently trying to get DS assessed by the Local Authority.

As part of my evidence I am trying to prove that when he isn't getting support his progress is reduced.

Year 2 SATS

Reading 2A
Writing 2C
Maths 2A

I do not have any results for Year 3

Year 4

Reading 4B
Writing 3A
Maths 3B

Year 5

Reading 5C
Writing 4B
Maths 4B

Year 6 (Teacher Assessments)
Reading 5C
Writing 4C
Maths 4B

All the above were done without any adjustments and the crucial one I think is between Year 5 and Year 6 when he was getting minimal support and his levels stayed the same or in writing went down a sublevel. Between Year 4 and Year 5 he was having play therapy so his anxieties were being managed.

For his actual Year 6 SATs he got 5's but he was having support and had adjustments extra time, a scribe and tested separately.

I know there is a national expectation of childrens progress I think I have read something like an above average child should progress by 2 sublevels per year. Is there an offical site that state the expected levels of progression that I could use to back up my claims.

Any comments or help gratefully received.

I also believe the national expectations are for a child to move 2 whole levels from their KS1 SATs so children who get level 2's at KS1 should leave primary with level 4's and the 3's are expected to get 5's.

Having supported 2 friends through the statementing process here in Kent , where its very hard to get a statement, unofficially both friends were told that they need to prove their child is on average 3 years behind to be in with a chance. One friend currently has a son just finishing Y5, and working at levels 1's(with an ASD), is now struggling to keep him from being put back in mainstream for his secondary education. :evil: But as i said before we are Kent, Bucks may be different.

Maybe you need to be pushing things on other needs your DS has.

Good luck MG

We are not fighting a battle about his intellectual ability - I'd lose that fight before I have even started. He does however have a 5 year disparity between his intellectual ability and his literacy skills - which is a lot greated than the disparity of 2 - 3 years they use for children who are under achieving. He is an extremely anxious child due to his Aspergers and needs a lot of emotional support. His SATs results were achieved with a lot of emotional support and adjustments.

He is going to a mainstream Grammar in September and we need it ensure the right amount of support is put in place so his anxieties don't get the better of him.

I also have 3 specialists who have recommended he has input from the Specialist Teaching Service but in Bucks this is only available if you have a statement.

BCC have already acknowledged he has a disability and SEN that needs support but it's the level of support that is where we need to fight.

Not an easy battle but I am prepared to rise to the challenge.
