He went back to school today
and into Year 4.
The beginning of his fifth year of full-time schooling.
Did you spot anything different?
Regular readers may have noticed a different uniform.
Back in January, at Statement Review time,
we asked for a change of school
and, four months later, were denied our initial choice of school.
Six months later we were still pushing for a change of school.
Being constantly on the 'phone to Children's Services.
Visiting schools in our area.
Asking questions, questions, questions.
Receiving confirmation of a placement we believed would work.
Arranging transition sessions.
Buying a whole new uniform; only the white shirts are the same.
Worrying, worrying, worrying.
Are we doing the right thing?
Should we leave him where he is?
The day is here and worrying is pointless.
He's gone off happily.
Now we wait.
