Just a bit of a moan - DS's proposed statement was due on the 9th. Still no sign - I've been phoning everyday, we're hoping for a pre-pre school place at a very over-subscribed SN school. Each telephone call I've been told the meeting between the School and the statementing officer is taking place the next day and to phone in the afternoon. So I call only to be told meeting didn't take place, rescheduled for next day - repeat - three weeks later ... Finally get to speak to statementing officer only to be told it'll be another 2 weeks at least before we get his proposed statement!
no, shouldn't have the school named until the statement is finalised. In practice the lea are usually aware of your preferences and often write the statement depending on whether it's for ss or ms but that's not how it's supposed to be done and strictly speaking the setting shouldn't make a blind bit of difference to the statement, it should be specified and quantified either way.
That's exactly what they are doing Star! The EP said he has written a letter of recommendation stating he needs a pre pre school place as has everyone else involved in his care. But what we're being told is there is no statutory requirement to provide pre pre schools places and they are having to use portacabins to accommodate the pre school and year 1s!!
Their architectural departments inadequacies has nothing to do with your ds. Perhaps if they spend some time addressing his needs now he might fulfil his potential, become an architect and help them out. It's an investment.
