New IEP - what a difference!

A new teacher started at the school who does 2 days per week for reception and Yr1 mixed class.....she was a SENCO previously and is an advisor free-lance to schools on the other 3 days...
She has changed how the class is set up and how the day is managed, and as a result DS goes into a calm relaxed place, knows the expectations and has fewer issues with complying with their requests.....more days that are brilliant and wonderful than
Had a meeting with her and other CT to discuss progress with the IEP from May - she dismissed it as not worth looking at, and just started a new one that is absolutely what DS needs. The actual SENCO didn't attend at all, not sure why as she was on site at the time.
Anyway...much happier that DS is being properly supported with goals that are well defined and we wait to see if they actually 'do' what they say they will do to help him progress.....but I have hope!

I asked if she was enjoying the job and she said yes so hopefully we have her for the foreseeable! Phew!

She was just so understanding - too many staff changes (too many different people working with all the children), chaotic/unclear classroom/playroom arrangement caused problems for DS particularly but just made the job of teaching more difficult full stop, DS being a prem baby and other associated delays mean he was socially and emotionally a much younger 4 year old when he started than the other children, and stating that this is perfectly understandable, not unusual and no problem to take into consideration.
A breath of fresh air.

So much has been achieved this term already, I can only imagine how brilliant he is going to be by the end of Y1.

Its taken my breath away!
