An update on this.
I had a very positive meeting with his class teacher. She told me not to be discouraged as he was very close to meeting some standards.
But although his reading is good the standard involved discussing the book and his verbal skills are not so good. Which is why he didn't make a lot of the standards.
Also she said that she felt that it was in his best interests to go into year 1 with a low score as then he will receive the necessary support to reach the standards.
She was clear that he was keeping up in reading, writing and maths. And felt that now his verbal skills were developing he would meet those standards going forward.
