Its not all an SN problem but didnt want to put in main board as feeling a little tender right now and dont think i can take the stick
DD1 is now in year3 and christmas is fast approaching. Now we dont celebrate christmas for religious reasons. I dont mind her learning about other religions at all but not joining in celebrations.
Now they have started practicing christmas show this week which will result with DD1 sitting in the ICT room alone with her Autistim teacher doing stuff (doesnt sound like much work is going on, just drawing ect) EVERY afternoon.
Now she's really struggling with it all and is getting in a right state thinking school will forget shes not meant to be in practicies but also because she's bored
Does anyone know if I would legally be allowed to take her out to do stuff with her at these times? Im thinking science muesum, library, swimming, art stuff and other educational stuff.
We always take her out for final week of school to Center parks so plently of fun there
What the school are doing doesn't seem to be very well thought out. If the head won't agree to you taking her out then maybe you could discuss with them what they will do instead - it doesn't seem like they have given it any thought at all. Would she benefit from extra help in any areas (eg reading) or can the teacher access some useful work on the computer?
They need to modify her school timetable at this time. Speak to the head.
My son is off school tomorrow because his one to one ladies (job share) are off work at the same time (which cannot be helped, I know) and he will not cope with the special activity day that is planned for the class.
We will have a day at home. He is ten.
Because school could not safely accomodate his needs on this day, I told them what I would be doing instead.
Our school are great - they let me take DS1 and DS2 home for portions of the day after they've picked up their 'mark' for being present at school. We go off and go to 'The Deep' or a museum or something.
school have agreed for her to be out for 2 full days and one lunch been intresting though, they have been doing alot of work 1-1 with her about social skills which is great, but knowing she is good at math and likes it been trying different things with her. Shes only year 3 but doing year 6 maths work!!
