A statutory assessment may be carried out if your child does not seem to be making progress or needs extra help that the school is unable to provide.
A statutory assessment will find out what your child’s additional learning needs are and what help your child requires.
You and your child will be asked for your views as will other people who know your child such as the school, your doctor and anyone else who could help to give a clear picture of your child’s needs.
When all the evidence has been received, the panel will consider the evidence carefully before making a recommendation.
If it is decided that a Statement should be written, you will receive a copy of the proposed statement within 2 weeks of the decision being made.
