I wonder if there is someone who can advise on what we should do. DS is at a underfunded school. Head has advised that he needs one to one to support with regulation in class and to help him focus.But also that there is no funding to provide it.
We are in the process of an echp application, however they have said he might get a fixed term exclusion if he hurts another child. ( As He has bitten someone ) , he is a lovely boy, Their words lots of empathy and he is popular and enjoying school.
He is used to everyone there and feels comfortable, it has been discussed moving him to a bigger school with more SEN provision.
However, it will break his heart leaving his familiar base and all his friends. It seems ridiculous that they know he needs one to one to access the learning and feel regulated, however can’t supply that.
I believe parents may have complained , but not 100% about that as everyone is very nice to us all.
What would you do in this situation ? We are not sure if we have some ability to legally challenge an exclusion when they don’t provide what he needs for his SEN.
The Pupil premium is being used for a Family and schools together session once a week, however great this is we would prefer one to one in the classroom.
