Why the right school is so important to us

So the first day of school has come and gone - and we are still at home waiting for a decision on where my Son should be schooled.

We have an appointment on Monday with an ARP (Additionally Resourced Provision) who is considering taking my Son - not sure what is due to happen or long it will take for a decision, but we hope that it will be sorted out next week.

For us finding the right school is about so much more than his education.

Granted an EHCP, only to question the stated provisions

We have an EHCP! Unfortunately we don't have a school.

As everyone excitedly gets ready for a new year at school, we find ourselves unsure of where to send our son as we wait for a decision to be made on the best place for him to go.

I can't believe that it is over 2 months since my son was asked to leave his previous school, and just one day until the new term starts. It is even harder to believe that we still have no uniform, bag, travel or childcare agreements for when we are at work and no confirmed plan for school!

So how is it that with just a day to go, we still have no plan for school?
