My daughter has a statement yet is sent to mainstream.
The school and I agreed that special school will benefit her more.
The problem is the special school that we want and near home is oversubscribe.
I do not know what to do.
 Advice me on this please

    Hi Fon,

    It's a tricky one - lots depends on funding, how places are allocated, and alternative provision.  The SENCo (Special Educational Needs Coordinator) at your daughter's current school should be able to advise you on the best course of action - additionally you might want to contact IPSEA (Independent Parental Special Education Advice) to see if they can offer any insight

    Hope that helps!
