My daughter is on school action and is in yr 3. Her end of KS1 assessment was maths 1 science 1 reading W. The school have refused for 2 years to put her on the list for the ed phyc or move her to SA+. Theres is a 2 year wait to see the school phyc even if i did manage to get her name on the list. She absolutely hates school and is starting to realise she has a problem. She has been on Level 2 readers since yr1 and made no progress although she has made some progress in writing and maths.

I am now looking in to maybe paying for a private ed phy and have had a meeting with a head teacher from another school. The school she is in is good with outstanding features. The other school was in measures and is now graded satisfactory with good features. This school has better success with SN children and i am toying with the idea of moving schools. The headteacher at the other school was lovely and gave me more information in 30min than her current school have in 4 years.

I am having a meeting next week with the head teacher, senco and banardos.

I am just wondering if anyone has changed school and if they have made the right choice.
