For ours, the school put it together and there was a separate part that we wrote up (briefly) and sent in acknowledging that we wanted it to go ahead. And then once the main paperwork came through, we had to fill out a questionnaire (much like the DLA form hmm) as well. It's time consuming and, again like the DLA form, rather emotionally draining.

Although, I will point out that our school is very supportive and we trusted the senco who coordinated everything - a lot will depend on how reliable your school personnel are, to be fair. And always, regardless, make sure you know what they're submitting!

the school would have done one but said for us to request it as the LA are more likely to agree when parents submit than the school.but you have a freehand to really express your views reasons wishes so use it well its pivitol in wether they agree or not i was advised well and really supported by PP who helped us tell it the best way possible
