I'd agree happily but would want a copy of the EPs report and recommendations. Why have they sprung this on you though and how does it tie in with your son being spat at by other childrenconfused

Weird that being the victim has got HIM attention. Do not engage with victim blaming even in passing.

If they tolerate low level bullying they can't.

They don't actually need your consent if the EP is just observing, as he or she presumably won't be interacting directly with your child. I can't see any reason to say no.

I think they DO need your consent if the EP is assessing your ds in any way, regardless of if they interact with him or not.

Is it just an observation or followed by an assessment too?

It is good EP practise to consult with parents too.

EP observation seems like a positive step

There are often adults in classrooms for various purposes, e.g. Ousted inspectors, senior staff monitoring performance, governors etc, and permission from individual parents is not required for that. Therefore if an EP is simply sitting at the back of the room observing, permission isn't needed.

Is the Ed Psych observing the classroom or observing your DS in the classroom? Quite a difference, I feel.

I agree lougle. The permission isn't "you may interact with my child" (because obviously people interact with your child all the time at school), it's "you may assess my child", which if it is extra to normal teaching is something you can refuse.

I hope SALT plans to write a report, with some recommendations?

That sounds positive. Hopefully school will respond to recommendations since they sought the assessment!
