Hi there (Sorry moderators - I have posted this here as well as on the Kent forum
I haven't posted here for quite some time so I hope you don't mind me jumping in with a question....
My son has a Statement of Special Educational Needs. He has ADD/ADHD which is now very well managed with medication. In retrospect we were 'lucky' to get a Statement for him 5 years ago - we certainly wouldn't get one now.
According to his current Head teacher it is extremely likely that he will pass the Kent Test (she has lots of evidence to support a HT appeal if necessary) so we are looking at our local Grammar with a mind to him going there.
My question is - Will the Statement be a disadvantage in the admissions process? The Senco at the Grammar told us that there are no
Statemented children in the school what-so-ever. This has rung alarm bells for us!
I should also say that our daughter is already at the Grammar school in year 8 and we live about 500 meters from the school so ds ticks lots of boxes for a place.
Does anyone have any knowledge or experience of this?
Thanks in advance.
