It can be difficult to get information about the school day from J but I have elicited the information that "it's much better than my old school".
I can well believe this as mainstream school no longer suited J.
The other information he remembered was about what he had for lunch. Chicken Korma on Thursday "the chicken was chewy" and "fish fingers and chips and a dark chocolate crispy cake" on Friday.
His home/school diary notes that he has had a great start to the term and is happy.
Onwards and upwards.
