Based on my DS class teacher's end of year report, they rank him positively academically but behaviour-wise, it's mainly negative. I have gone through his Year 5 report and can pick out 15 positives out of 5 negatives, summarily that he responds well to feedback, is versatile, naturally able, an independent worker who's confident in maths, a contributor, team player, can create and use a database in IT etc.... the negatives suggest that he struggles with imagination (creative writing), does not have a regular reading book (been working on this), easily distracted, inconsistent in science and at times disruptive. We still haven't submitted his school report due to this negative feedback because we feel it will work against him. He is a deep thinker and very intelligent though requires constant stimulation and routine.
I hate to impose and appreciate any feedback I can get. The sad thing is that I did not come across this website sooner. The information including the forum has been invaluable and can not thank everyone enough for your frank contribution and opinions. Thanks and I will definitely respond with my outcome.
Everything happens for a reason and as I have another one yet to go through this harrowing journey in 1 year's time, I now know where to look for guidance
