I have found myself involved in helping to set up a secondary schools nuture group. The idea is to make secondary schools a more emotionaly supportive environmentfor all, students and staff.

This would be, I would imagine of particular interest and hopefully help to families of children with SN.

Can I people ask for some help? What examples of good practice have you seen in secondary schools in helping children develop secure and mature emotional lives? What things could we put into place to make the trasition from the small and supportive primary school to the larget, more disparate secondary school? What would help?

tom is about to go up to secondary and i've been impressed so far...he is attending his final 'SN' visit tomorrow...where all the SN kids get to spend 2 hours at school a class....

I think it could improve by being at different times of the it is at presen 8.30-10.30 each week...reason being...then he would get to try out break times/lunchtimes...and the coming out at the end of the day.

These are the things that i believe stress the kids....and yesterday he had the 'normal' ALL DAY visit where all the newbies came ...but it only ran from 9.15- he has yet to experience the true hustle and bustle of the school day.

That said...he preffered the 'normal' whole day visit to the 2 hour slots...he reckons they aren't 'real'....he has Aspergers
