I was wondering which LAs in London/home counties appear to be better than others?
Mine is all for issuing woolly statements which don't specify much and ramble on for ages. I am at the pre-finalisation stage of the statement.

I am not happy with Ds' (7 ASD) mainstream primary school and was told by his class teacher that there isn't much they can do for him academically but the advantage of him attending their 'outstanding' school is that there is such a large pool of kids so they will be able to pair them off with a young TA and do things out of class while the class teacher gets on with the real teaching. He is performing beyond his age by years on certain NC tests so I think his future is being compromised in a big way.
I have mentioned to them that I think he would be better off in a smaller school but this is probably one of the best out of a bad bunch in the local area. There is a small, fairly cheap indie school which would be possible if I could get them to fund it.
For a multitude of reasons, I would dearly love to move on though stay close enough to family so only looking for a London zones move which would hopefully serve him well for secondary too. Any recommendations?

Bumping for you. I've heard Herts is to be avoided at all costs!
