Yesterday we visited Grove House School and rejoiced.
The school is tiny compared with the mainstream secondary school which J was attending. There are very few classrooms at Grove House although this will change with each year as they fill to capacity.
The deputy headteacher was lovely, I've met her previously when I visited the special school she used to teach at. She was fabulous then at looking through J's Statement and advising me. I am overjoyed to find her at Grove House.
Building work on the refurbishments are in their finishing stages and will be complete by Thursday when J begins.
There will be speech and language therapists within the classrooms and occupational therapists at other times depending upon the subject. There will be two LSA's and a teacher too, the classes will be small ....around 10-15 children per class so lots of support can be given.
I am so relieved that J has the opportunity of attending this school and am keeping everything crossed for a successful launch.
I will also join the PTA and fundraise for them. They are going to be so supported by parents who have had to wait for this much needed school.
