As those of you who have read posts I've done previously will know, dinky and I have been in a hostel for 11 months.

Well, today I got a phone call WE HAVE GOT A HOUSE!! grin grin grin

Just thought I'd share some good news... So dinky will be able to leave the school that doesn't want her, and have a fresh start!

Over the moon grin

Fantastic news! Lovely new start for you both. smile

Not read your other posts but wanted to say YIPPEE! Celebrate tonight, even if just with a mars bar!

PolterGoose Fri 01-Mar-13 18:58:16

Dinky so pleased for you, it will make such a difference thanks

EllenJaneisstillnotmyname Fri 01-Mar-13 19:00:06

That is great! I saw your post when the school described you as one of 'those sorts' of families. angry Bet you can't wait!

marchduck Fri 01-Mar-13 19:05:07

Dinky, I have read some of your posts. Your DD is lucky to have such a fab mum - all the best to you both for your new home. I hope you have much happiness there!

BaggyKnickers Fri 01-Mar-13 19:06:40

That's fantastic. Honk honk!

That's brilliant - I am so pleased for you!!

Dinkysmummy Fri 01-Mar-13 19:13:16

Thanks everyone! smile

It was fun telling the deputy head/senco!

I told her that we had got a place and have done the form for admissions, and that I had very quickly come round to moving to an area and a school that was used to families like ours! Also that the TAC she had arranged needs to be assessed as she won't be lead professional anymore, and she might need to invite the new school to the meeting!

lougle Fri 01-Mar-13 19:14:32

Well done you!

LadyMaryQuiteContrary Fri 01-Mar-13 19:15:56

That's amazing! I'm so very happy for you all. smile thanks

EllenJaneisstillnotmyname Fri 01-Mar-13 19:18:29

I hope your new school is much more sympathetic and inclusive. smile One thing I've learnt from MNSN is that leafy, suburban schools aren't always the best for any sort of SN.

Dinkysmummy Fri 01-Mar-13 19:30:20

I totally agree Ellen

I went to see another school (not the one dinky will go to but another not so popular area), it seemed so much friendlier and every class had a LSA up to year 6 with added TA for early years and 3 floating LSA shock
They had a fantastic outside woodland area and I visited every classroom up to year 2 and every class said hello and nearly every teacher said "bring her here" when they found out I was looking at two schools.
The pastoral support teacher was lovely and it is certainly not the type of welcome you would get at dinkys current school!

Lesson learned!

I can't wait to visit dinkys new school on Monday! grin

NoHaudinMaWheest Fri 01-Mar-13 19:30:37

Great news. Sounds like a good new start for you and Dinky.
Tell us when you move in and we will have a virtual MNSN special house-warming party for you.

EllenJaneisstillnotmyname Fri 01-Mar-13 19:32:08

Missed this yesterday.

Fantastic news Dinkysmummy. I am so pleased for you and Dinky.

I wish you both all the luck and happiness in the world in your new home. smile

MareeyaDolores Sat 02-Mar-13 17:23:53

Great news.

Good job you're moving schools
"Of course dinky is behind, it's the shock of leaving B&B,
and how are you managing with all the housework and bills,
[passive aggressive]
how much transferred anxiety is she getting ATM?"

zzzzz Sat 02-Mar-13 17:32:53

Yay what wonderful news for you both. A home! I'm so pleased for you it's made my weekend. I'm in for a virtual housewarming.

insanityscratching Sat 02-Mar-13 17:52:48

Great news FWIW dd goes to a school in a very deprived area rather than the village school which sounds a lot like Dinky's first school. It's a lovely school with a really inclusive approach. Ok some of the parents in the playground look scary but they all seem to want the best for their children as well.
So pleased for you and Dinky,

Dinkysmummy Sat 02-Mar-13 18:22:13

Thanks a lot everyone... I am so happy! Dinky is very happy too (once I mentioned not having to move again afterwards!).

Mareeya lol, by the time she leaves it will be a good thing otherwise I think I would have turned in to the hulk at the rate they were going! wink

insanity To be honest I think this other school will probably suit us better (mutton dressed as lamb comes to mind with current school!).

Thanks again for all your good luck and best wishes! grin

Now it's just packing confused lol
