they were on the news at lunch time and came over as a lovely family. Shame on that school, funny being high achieving they don't want a child with sen, seems it's got sod all to do with the wheelchair she uses from what I can see.
Well said gorione. They would put the proverbial red carpet out for him, i remember reading Dame Tanni's book a few years ago and she had the same problem at school and that was over twenty five years ago. What a shame that schools cant move with the times!!
If the school is selective then they do not have to take her if she cannot pass the entrance test. If the building is not suitable for wheelchairs they don't have to take her they are only obliged to make "reasonable adjustments" which doesn't include widening corridors. However on the face of it neither of those is the case so it is badly wrong. On the other hand would you want to send your child to a school with attitudes like that?
That is shocking. When I was at school there was a boy in the year above me who had CP and who used a wheelchair. If there was a fire and he was trapped upstairs there was someone who was meant to carry him out.
