DD, as you know, is in a <normal poeple> school but its doubtful she'll ever read and she'll certianly never write even if she turns out to be Einstien. What will they do with regarding SATS in Y2 then?
Does she communicate at all yet? How long do you have? Sorry, can't remember how old she is.
The sats are supposed to be done so that they are inclusive and it isn't possible to fail. Don't think they have really considered all needs though!
I really don't know how it is all going to work and ds1 has his this spring. He can barely write and the scribe isn't allowed to do the bits that measure handwriting for him. So there is no way he is going to be able to do it all.
she's in reception I like to get my frets in well in advance. But given my friends lad with athetoid CP (so no seizures or sensory issues) still can't read at 7 and is only just mastering his communication aid it made me wonder. So no, they haven't considered SN at all.
Searching the net, everywhere is Very Quiet on any information on sats with severe sn.
has she started with a communication aid yet? I did some work experience in a primary school which was a sort of center for children with sn, alongside mainstream kids. I reckona bout half of the children with cp were getting quite efficient with them by year 2.
I think children on P scales are disapplied for SATs, because P scales means that they're working below Level 1 of the National Curriculum. I certainly don't expect DS2 to be taking them when he's in Y2 (next year).
Hope you get them sorted soon. It so infuriating. One of the girls I worked with actually had all private care as her cp was caused by negligence. It was amazing how much more she could achieve because she had the private care, privately funded 1:1, all the equipment available. It should be there for everyone.
I'm crossing my fingers that the SATs, particularly at KS1 only have one more year to run, as threatened last month. They're very useful to teachers at KS2 and moreso KS3 but I think the KS1 tests are just too much for kids. DS1 (also in reception) is academically very able and his language is improving constantly and is almost age appropriate, these days, but he can't sit still for 2 minutes, never mind sit a test and I doubt he'll find it much easier in 2.5 years time.
depends entirely on the school I think, When ds1 (nt) did ks1 sats we didn't know a thing about them & neither did he. The school just built them in to the lesson times & only because they had. I'm hoping they'll be equally relaxed about them when ds2 is in yr2, he's yr 1 at the moment & is just at the scribbling stage!
TBH its one thing I won't be complaining about if he isn't included.. Bloody worthless assessment of 6 yr olds IMHO!
