I hope it goes well for her!!!

Hope she enjoys it! Let us know how she gets on. Why do you feel she should be home educated? Because you did it for your other two, or do you feel her needs won't be met at M/S?

Its hard leaving them on their first proper day- bet you will be a bit lost today.

Oh I hope it goes well Riven. It'll take a few days for both of you to adjust. Let us know how she gets on.

I hope things go really well today for you all.

My DD attends a school with SN resoures and one of the little girls at her school is also very phsyically disabled (im not sure what her disability is, but at a guess i would say CP she is also non verbal) all the children totally adore her!!. At school events its one of the older girls that will take her round in her wheelchair (her mum doesnt get a look in grin).

I think in a M/S schools with a SN units the NT children are far more SN aware and unfased by disability, I know that the vast majority at DDs school certainly are.

We refused a male transport escort for my daughter and they found a woman. Not sure what rights you have though.

Religious grounds riven. They have to respect your wishes. There should be a woman present anyway if I've got it right. When I was possibly going to have a male mobility officer at school he said a woman would have to be there too. He also had to keep the door of whatever room we were in open. Ask the council, they should know.

i'd stick with muslim rather than requesting a change on the paranoid card! think they may take cultural issues into account if requested. you can but ask. don't think it's a 'right', but if you rang and explained they may be sympathetic....
glad she had a good day!
