angry I'm not surprised you are sick of it.
What part of 'Ds finds playtimes stressful so he must be allowed to use his funded time to stay in whenever he needs to' can they not understand?
It really is straightforward.
Thank goodness the secondary seem more on the ball.

Brilliant letter. The TA sounds like a liability.

Do be careful.

My complaints about DS's statement not being adhered to (his TA was being used for the rest of the class despite 28.5 hours being allocated in his statement) led to SS making my life hell last year in retaliation.

Log it yes, in case you need it for future evidence. School will either sort it straight away, or you'll be flannelled and you know the difference by now.

If he only has one more year and school can't be bothered any more, why subject him to the stress of SATS etc. Keep him home and concentrate on a decent secondary transition instead of killing yourself trying to get them to do their jobs.

That is poor. Ds is a child not a mate in the staff room. Why is she telling ds her issues?

I think your letter is great. Well done for sounding so nice in it, which I struggle to do! thanks

Hi I don't know if this helps at all but when my child was still in mainstream, any anxiety inducing activities (trips, community days, performances, you name it really ...) I used to email the head and ask permission to keep him off. This was usually as a result of them dropping hints to me, ie what do you want to do about x on such and such day. I would then email the head and say I have been approached and asked what I want to do, therefore I assume you have concerns about supporting him, I agree with your concerns, therefore can I have authorised absence. For me, I wanted to show that my keeping him off was a result of their concerns voiced indirectly to me rather than my decision as such. The head always agreed. I think ultimately it was mutually convenient and enabled us to get him into ss but I also had a point I was trying to make.

Unfortunately the crucial ingredient that's missing in your recipe is "willingness"!

It would seem it has been rationed for quite some time, which is why it is in such short supply in many schools.

Apologies for the food anology, I'm trying to lose a few 1lbs and all I can think about is bloody food!
