Were your DS/DD's assessed to be given an Early Years Score to see where they are performing at??

If you mean subjects are listed and they get a score out of nine - then yes DD did get the early year scores (don't mean to sound blunt - DD did get scores but I'm not sure exactly what they were called off the top of my head).

No. Just got lists of what he has achieved in the various subject areas and how he needs to improve.

yes - we were given the details in the parent's evening mid way through the last half term. they weren't in the report that came home at the end of term.

Well my DS was assessed against some Early years Profile and they are scored for different things like Reading, writing, sounds, number work, social and emotional development, imaginative dev etc and the "national" average apparently is a 6 but DS only achieved 2.5 but the school didnt seem worried.

The score obviously showed he is behind although his concentration stops him but I am frustrated with the school not thinking its a big deal.!

Anna - lots of threads about the EYFS on the primary board.

2.5 is not good. School should be concerned. Does he have a statement?

There are many good teachers on the primary board who can answer any specific questions you have about those scores and what they all mean.

We are in the process of applying for a statement! The 6 week deadline is Thursday! But my LEA is being really mean on issying statements and most are being turned down!!

0-3 is considered below average so 2.5 is not a good score. Did your DS score 2.5 in all catergories? School should be concerned and if they don't seem worried that is very worrying.

Anna85 Tue 26-Jul-11 22:34:43

Mostly 2-3's so they give an average! Reading and writing was 2's and no improvement from Autum Term. Although number work he did score a 6! emotional/Social was only 2 which with his ASD is expected and the imagintative dev he didnt even score!

The thing is I think the SENCo is getting fed up of me but the only help he will get in September is small group work within the class but if those ppl are scoring above DS and have a different academic ability how is that going to help!! I will fight for a statement all the way! His scores was put in with the application so hopefully that will help!!! x

Dd's totalled 113 which I didn't realise until I looked on MN was an exceptionally high score. Especially exceptional for a statemented child with an ASD I think probably only possible because of the early intervention she had though.

I have no idea what DD1 scored, sorry.

Anna - 6 week deadline doesn't include the summer school holidays.

The SENCO will think you're a pain, but you have to keep fighting. Keep fighting for a statement - but also keep fighting for more help without the statement.

You don't need a statement for help. You do need a switched on SENCO.

Ask MRZ on the main primary board what interventions she'd recommend - she's a very switched on SENCO.

And keep posting here.
