I need some help.

DS is in Y3, working on P levels and barely made progress this year. He has a statement with 15h 1:1 in a MS setting. I want his 1:1 support increased to full time or a SS place as the current setting is clearly not working. School disagrees as he is making progress (tiny though). AR is in 2 weeks and I will discuss it but firmly expect to be fobbed off. How do I go about it. Statement was issued in reception and I cannot appeal it anymore. what would the procedure be to get the contents of the statement changed? thank you.

You get the opportunity to appeal after every annual review so if the LA wont agree to what you are asking for, appeal!

ah thanks. that is clear then. didn't know that you can appeal after every AR.

Yes because technically they are issuing a new statement after each AR even if they dont agree to change anything.

Good luck 💐
