It would be wise to arrange for him to see a good child psychologist or paediatrician for a proper assessment ( the school should be able to recommend some suitable people ).
There are many possible explanations for this apparently recent problem, many of them relatively easily solved, but the nature of the problem needs to be properly identified and managed

Do you think he might be ADHD? This could be causing it. Also, what is his diet like - does he eat lots of sweets or is a healthy foods eater? The wrong diet can really impact on children''s school work &  behaviour. ALso, try giving him fish oil supplements, at least 1000mg daily as this is really helpful.
