well. went to dd1's class first and was told that the gap between her and her peers development is getting bigger, she is playing up big time, and isn't learning. Teacher said 'please will you read with her??!! I said 'i do' and she said that I hadn't written in the contact book, i said that the book was missing for weeks ( and she knew that) and I have been writing in the book recently. She then said that dd1 had told her that she didn't have to read and write because apparently I had told dd1 that she didn't have to learn because she can't do it..!!!!!!!???? that is a load of rubbish and I told the teacher that, I said that we are always telling dd1 that she has to listen and behave and learn... I can't believe that the teacher believed dd1 on that one...
She said that dd1 is getting on with her 1-2-1 and she mentioned that it was 45 minutes a day, at which I wrinkled my nose, and the teacher had a go at me about it, I just said 'look i know its not your fault or the schools, its the education dept, but 45 minutes a day isn't enough' god i can't stand that teacher.
ds' report was good and his teacher is very pleased with him. I read his work and was very impressed with one piece of writing he done on his alphasmart.

To be honest sm I am so shocked at the little support your dd is getting (not sure about your ds). I mean she has a dx of cp and only gets 45 minutes a day???? Teacher doesn't sound at all understanding.

Ds's sounds very good.

Ds doesn't have any support as he doesn't need it, he is above average for reading, maths, and spellings, he is reading yr5 books (in yr3)
DD1 is on ear-marked-pupil funding atm, as she still doesn't fit the critea for a statement.

I hope you don't mind me asking sm but have they said if the cp is mild or moderate?

It's just I got my dd statemented with a language delay dx. She too it a very clever girl but has other issues with her communication.

thats the thing, even the senco/head (he does 2 jobs lol) said that if we lived in the next county she would have had a statement ages ago... I have requested an assessment twice and both times they have refused. Back to the begining again i suppose.....

not being funny, but have noticed that all the kids i know through sn groups, in this area, if they have AS they get the funding they need, kids with physical disablities are forgotten...
