That is exactly how I feel, Scarlett. It makes me so cross
! My DS was put with an extremely naughty but bright boy for a maths task last week. The boy walked off - out of the classroom (found wandering round the school!) - half way through and it wasn't until the end of the class that the teacher had noticed that he wasn't there, or that my son was trying to manage on his own. My DS has, similarly, been given a table in a corner of the classroom to do his literacy work, which helps, slightly, but not enough I think. And, besides, it makes him feel like he's got the problem, rather than the hellish kids being dealt with.
Sorry, fuming, ranting as I type!
There is now less than 2 weeks left of school (report at the end of the week!) and I feel I've wasted enough of my breath with his current teacher. Next year, it's a different building, different teacher and, though still the same class for most subjects, they are split up across the year group for the core subjects. I think that will make some difference but not perhaps 100%.
I suppose I just didn't want this problem to continue, let alone escalate and as I can't control the classroom (sadly
), I thought perhaps I could help how my son deals with it.
