We have just had my ds's yr5 report and he has achieved a 3a for writing and a 4c for reading. His report also says that he has made progress etc etc, but at the end of yr4 he finished on a 4c for both of these subjects, so not only has he made no progress he has actually apparently regressed with his writing?
I have a few issues with this, but mainly why have I been told that he has progressed as expected through the year when this clearly isn't the case?
I don't think last yr's results were inflated and they were progressing in line with his results from previous years.
Should I let it go or say something? Whilst his maths is still very good I just feel he has had a bit of a wasted year
I wouldn't let it go. Arrange a meeting with his class teacher and specify that you would like to discuss his progress. You don't need to go in all guns blazing, you just want clarification on what progress he has made as this is not reflected in his levels. Good luck and let us know how you get on xxx
