Usually I'm on here moaning, but today something good happened! Ds1's future school teacher sent us a book she'd made with lots of photos of the school and teachers senco etc to show ds1. I thought that was really nice of her- especially considering its her summer holiday!

Glad we chose that school- even if we have upset the LEA by choosing a school in a different LEA

YOu don't moan. And I know I'm evesdropping on your thread but I've just finished a tedious bit of work and am rewarding myself with Mumsnet. Glad to find good news.

What a lovely surprise for you and your son, jimjams. I hope it's the first of many things that confirm you made a good choice of school.

DH says it's because she wants to avoid being smacked round the face by ds1 again

The only slightly worrying thing is every time I show him the picture of the main entrance he says "du dye mmm" bye bye school. He liked the picture of the computer room though.

That's a really nice thing to have done! It sounds like this school is going to try hard to do what's best for him.

Isn't the fact that he associates the main entrance with "Bye bye mummy" good? He knows you'll be leaving him there. What happens if it's not the main entrance that you'll be leaving him at? I know I'm to take DS1 to his classroom.

That is fantastic JimJams - ds school got round to doing similar book of photos this year after 3 years (and the school is very good), so I think its a very good sign. You picked well - Well done!

Jim Jams - Really lovely to hear that, sometimes faith needs rstoring and comments like that do just the job. Really pleased for you Jimjams it must be such a good / reassuring feeling.

Aloha - please don't think that just because you child hasn't any SN as such that for you to come onto a SN thread is eavsdropping. I go onto all threads and I'm not breastfeeding / preganant / trying to conceive and I haven't recently lost someone or lost someone etc etc. It doesn't matter. I've received wonderful support and advice on this thread many mothers, some with, some without SN children. So please don't feel that this thread isn't open to everyone.

wishful thinking soupy- he says bye bye school and shoves the book back at me. bye bye anything usually means take it away!

jimjams my dd does the same. I remember with the protage sessions if the portage lady used to get a jigsaw out that she didnt want to play with she used to 'bye'. Forunatley the portage worker used to think it was hilarious.

fio2- ds1 used to say "du dye babeebum" (alison - portage workers name) when he didn't want to do an activity. Luckily she thought it was funny as well.

Good point about the entrances though soupy- that's already caused problems! We did discuss it at a meeting with the school - I'll wait and see what happens!
