A reduced timetable is unlawful unless they put in some tuition at home - your son is entitled to full time education. You really need to talk to the school about accessing help for him, perhaps involving an educational psychologist. I would suggest you also ask if they think he needs an Education Health and Care Plan and if they will support you in applying for one.
