I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this year's teacher is way better than last year's

<<<crosses fingers>>>

Don't make him go?

(I don't mean to be pat, I don't know anything about your circumstances, and that might be a really unhelpful remark, so if it is just ignore it)

What age is he? Can you suggest that he gives it a try for a while, to see how he gets on with the new teacher? It sounds like they are trying to sort things out, so if he can give it a fair try then hopefully it'll resolve ok.

Could you say "let's see how it goes till half-term"? I don't know what other choices you realistically have if he's still not happy by then - are there other schools he could go to, or would home education be an option for you?

I've read your posts before and it sounds like you have had a total nightmare.

I would try and be as upbeat as possible in front of your son and make a lot of the "new year, new start". You need to start off the year with a positive relationship with the new teacher so personally I would send in a brief note asking for a meeting at a time to suit the teacher rather than catching her at what might be a bad time, then try and outline your concerns without allocating blame to last year's teacher if you can bear it. Could you get her to agree to a home/school notebook so you can communicate briefly daily, that way you can be alert to stuff like your son having had a bad day?

I'm guessing that you are rural so your kids go to the local school? If it really gets bad again is there anywhere else he/they could go?

Can you HE?

Sunny's advice is really good. YOU have got to be positive. He will pick up on your mood and your perceptions of his school.

A home school note book is a great idea, so is planning a meeting.

You and the new teacher have got the chance to make a great partnership to make school a place your child really wants to be.

I think that sounds fine for the first morning - maybe you should arrange a time to go in and chat with her in a few days? By then she'll have had a chance to get to know DS and work out if there's anything she should ask you about, and you can chat a bit more about how his problems affect him and how you deal with that.

Glad you got a good vibe from her anyway - hopefully it'll be a good fresh start for him.
