I was just wondering what support your school offers for children who are behind in reading and/or maths. 6.5y old DS is in Y1 is only on Level 4 reader ( PM benchmark) and behind in maths. I have had a number of conversations with his teacher about the fact he is behind. The last two I asked when can the school do to help him and she has said nothing, it is up to the teacher to try and do something in the class room with all her other students. (She is for the record an extremely unpleasant, defensive women and many parents think she is unstable.) We pay for a private tutor, his sisters teacher gave us some work for him to do after it came up in casual conversations. His teacher said I can talk to the teacher who deals with the children with learning problems ' to see if she knows about something that I don't' her words exactly. I did that - she suggested some assessments as he is quite hyper however I work in child health and half the children I see are referred to us from schools for behavioral issue. I have filled out the forms for my own interest and he is fine. His tutor does not think there is a problem and he has sat with her at times for two hours straight working ( his choice - he loves her to pieces). i am arranging to speak to the principle however I was wondering what other schools do -especially as Reading Recovery is no longer available. this issue was raised in about the 3rd week of school and now we are in Term 3 and nothing has been done.
