Hiya, I have a son in yr 6 with a statement who i would like to go to a particular school but it isnt in our catchment area (i dont think, cant find a map) I just wondered if children with statements get priority as i was told they did back in april but now nobody seems to know. I know it isnt the closest but it is definetly the better school for him. Just worried he wont get in now. Does anyone know how things work with statements etc, it isnt as severe as some, it is just for speech and language, thanks for any help. I would actually be prepared to move before i send him to another school.

I think it probably depends on the school, your best bet would be to ring and ask.

I know that a friend of mine her son has ADHD and got priority for a certain school as it specialises in supporting kids with ADHD. Plus it was a smaller school and her gp wrote a letter saying a smaller school would be better for him. But if shed wanted him to go to a different school he might not have got priority as she wouldn't have been able to argue it was a better school for him, etc.
