My area is rural but unfortunately is very expensive for housing as is home counties although we survive by being in a cramped too small rented house with rent that is still a struggle!
Our village school is wonderful for children across the whole range, my dd is in Y3 and ds is reception. Ds has SNs, he has a dx of sensory processing disorder and a speech and language disorder. He is also ?HFA although we are holding off for 6 months on dx to be sure as his package at school is so good a dx wouldn't gain anything and there are some areas of ? ASD. Ds has 15 hours 1-1, weekly visits from the SaL therapy assistant for therapy and also will be having OT at school shortly to address his sensory problems. I couldn't have ever asked for more from school, it has been from 0 to now in one term and no statement (yet).
I do think it may be an idea to post in special needs children as there are some very knowledgable people there and from what I have learnt you would be better off looking for the best LEA Rather then indeevidually school as it is the LEA who will fund extra provision and while some LEAs can be shocking there are some good ones. A good LEA will give you more then just a good school.
It would be far to identifable to name our school but pm me if you do want to know or if you want to talk.
I'll pm you the name of dd's wonderfully inclusive primary. Dd has autism but there are many children with many SN and SEN there too. The HT and SENCo are brilliant and bend over backwards to make sure that childrens' needs are met.
Each child on school action or school action plus has a keyworker and has 20 minutes 1 to 1 every day and there are numerous small group programmes. Pastoral care is brilliant and OFSTED commented that children are exceptionally safe and SEN support is outstanding.
Numbers have increased by 40% since the school opened less than 4 years ago as word has got out but there is currently an extension being built due to be finished by May.
Staffing is high with on average 3 ft TA's in each class and resources are great. There is a music and dance studio, an ampitheatre, computer suite, nurture room. football pitch, netball courts, allotment and wildlife area.
