dd has started transition(yr 10) and I have had to look at a college, now I don't want her to go there, IMO she will be better of if she stays where she is, but that is the expensive private option..... what i need to find out is what the mix of sn is in the yr 10 comming from the sn feeder school. any ideas?? I want to know how many are in wheelchairs, Have cp, have behavioural problems and so on.
What about the Connexions adviser? Presumably they will be involved in all the SN admissions to the college and could give just gen. info such as 'there will be 10 admissions, 5 from X school, 5 from Y school, 3 of those in wheelchairs, 2 with complex medical needs..' The 'mix' of SN is important. I'd like it if ds had some kids operating at around his level for his post-16. Have decided to have a look at the college in Cheltenham in the autumn. It still leaves me a bit shaky when I think about weekly boarding but his teenage BO is getting worse .
both good Ideas thanks. I don't want dd to end up on her own surrounded by walking talking young people. I am also going to say they will have to put a new accesible toilet in for her, the 2 in the college are accesed via the PLMD classroom.
I don't know why she chose that name, but wetaugust knows a huge amount about the system, legal rights and legal loopholes that the authorities try and use. She's not just an erudite and well-informed woman, she's a good'un too. Passes over the bucket of rjoca. I've finished my reports and checked, double-checked and sealed them. Waiting for the fallout on Monday!
Hi GoblinChild You've finished the marking early for once
Have given up drinking mid-week - it makes me fall asleep during really boring meetings!
Am absolutely hopping mad though at latest insult. I was sent a copy of a letter one doctor had written to another referring my son to his clinic and calling him "THE INDIVIDUAL" - not 'young person' or 'my patient' but INDIVIDUAL. Grrrr! Very cross!
Now can't decide wheter to stick with Dr who has zero social skills and awareness or change to one whose name looks like someone has lent on the keyboard!
I'm planning next term's maths lessons for the first three weeks, but I keep popping over here and getting distracted. It's probably the latest uber-neutral patientspeak for doctors. have you had one referring to him as a 'customer' yet?
There was a Parliamentary Committee meeting today to discuss 'gobblygook' in the public services. Shame I was at work at the time writing an investment appraisal on the effect on our stakeholders of rolling out the latest agile business initiative designed to address the lack of diversity and lack of a level playing filed across the piste.
