Ds2's Lea SEN officer has issued an amended statement within 3 weeks of me phoning him re. Concerns about ds2s provision.
He has completely re-written part 3 clearly spelling out the provision ds must receive, quantified & specified.
I nearly bloody fainted.
I think I love him.
There is not a single mistake & I dont need to make any amendments...just sign & return!

Wow! Yay yay yay! Good news for once. Send the man a letter explaining how very rare he is.

Maybe I should just point him in the direction of the sn board. I will include a thank you note & if I ever meet him he'll get a big sloppy kiss, poor man!

Great news indeed!!.

Do send this person a letter thanking him for his work on Part 3 of the statement.

Wow! That's so good to hear, especially after some of he horror stories I've read about on here. Mind you, it should be the norm not the exception! I'm really pleased for you. smile

How encouraging!!

TheTimeTravellersWife Thu 11-Oct-12 09:52:45

Great news! Well done! I am sure that you must have been very persuasive.
So encouraging to know that LAs CAN be reasonable

Veritate Thu 11-Oct-12 13:27:55

Which LA? Maybe we should all move there?

magso Thu 11-Oct-12 13:40:27

Gosh! Amazing!
We had a lovely LEA officer who agreed to almost all of out requests at a meeting - then left suddenly leaving the statement to be issued unchanged! Nightmare. I hope your LEA officer survives!

babiki Thu 11-Oct-12 13:56:05

Great!! Where is it, moving there tomorrow ;)

mymatemax Thu 11-Oct-12 16:15:09

I will share the name of our LEA for a small cash fee or large amount of chocolate! I dont think I was particularly persuasive, he just seems to get it

Yay wine

NoHaudinMaWheest Thu 11-Oct-12 17:07:32

Oh fantastic! Now I am dreaming of an earthly paradise where everyone gets it.

hoxtonbabe Thu 11-Oct-12 17:17:08

Blimey!!! I remember the days when there were quite a few around like him, they are very far and few between now..good for you though! :-)

madwomanintheattic Thu 11-Oct-12 17:37:52

Nah, sorry. We had an amended statement with all of my requested changes within a week, no argument, and that was four years ago. grin

But yay, anyway! grin

mymatemax Thu 11-Oct-12 20:18:47

Madwoman, I am happy to be told im wrong, the more good experiences the better. smile
