information please - I must try and get a SEN statement for my son

Good afternoon I am hoping for some information please.  We have recently moved back to the UK after many years in Cape Town where my 10year old son attended a special educational needs school.  He has PPD NOS Dyspraxia and is on the ASD spectrum but otherwise doing well.  He has been assessed as aprox 2 years behind.  I must try and get a SEN statement for him who do I contact for this?  The system is different in Cape Town we just had to pay the school to accept him.  I am terribly worried that he will be put into a secondary school with children his own age but who are more advanced than him academically.  I would like to avoid home schooling if I can.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  Regards, Liz
