Would removing my son from school affect his chances of being put in a special needs school?
Can anybody help me... this is a long story but I’ll will cut it down. I have a son who has an EHCP since sending off the paperwork it’s been 5 years and we are still waiting to be placed in a . Special needs school. There has been many failings by the education authority particularly the co-ordinator. And each panel meeting comes and my son misses out. It’s been very frustrating because they are now saying it will probably be at secondary age now which is another two years away. So he remains in his mainstream setting but kids have been cruel and there has been many occasions kids have said things or done things and the school have brushed it under the carpet which really upset me. My question is does anybody know if I was to take my son out of school would this effect his chances of being placed in a special needs school? He needs the placement but I’m desperate to keep him safe from these mean other kids. Thank you
