Last night was Olly’s parents evening and we had 15 minutes with his two core teachers.
Bottom line is that he seems to be happy at school (which we fully agree with now that the issues of earlier in the school year with one of his classmates appears to be resolved) and that with the exception of his ability to retain focus during lessons, he is doing well overall.
His SAT scores are 102 for maths and 110 for combined English. Therefore he is about where he should be (we did hear that phrase perhaps too often last night) although would really be helped with additional focus.
At this stage we are pretty happy with his progress and will knuckle down on his focus and writing – we saw clearly last night that he absolutely can write neatly, he just needs a greater focus on it and more and more practise.
