I'm sorry you are feeling anxious about your child's potential diagnosis. I hope you will find this useful:
Having talked to many head teachers at independent schools, I'd say the consensus seems to be that if they are able to support that child and meet for their needs then they are very happy to have them in their independent schools, as long as they can independently access the curriculum and keep up. The school is happy to amend and support the children with mild spld… give them laptops, extra time etc. However, if the needs of a child applying to their school are more significant and, having read the EP report they feel they cannot support the child, then they will not offer them a place. They ask for full disclosure and to read all professional reports before deciding if they can meet that child’s needs in their school. They judge it case by case.

We could also explore whether extra specialist help might support your child both ahead of and after any diagnosis, and help them stay in their current school.
