Can’t find a school for my daughter

Hi there

My 14-year-old daughter recently got diagnosed with autism in June and is going into year 10. She is currently on roll at a mainstream secondary school but was struggling to attend because of major anxiety issues. She is doing online lessons one hour a day but wants to return to in-person school to complete GCSEs and make new friends. We have only just completed her ECHP but have had to put her school down as the one she is currently at.

We have been looking for schools around the Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, and Essex area but most schools have no vacancies or are not appropriate.

If anyone knows of any schools that may be appropriate for my daughter’s situation please let me know.

Also if anyone has been in a similar situation and has advice, it would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

    Go on your councils website on the education section and usually theres a section about SEND schools available in the area. thats good because they are recognised as SEND schools and it also would help you narrow down to fewer schools options and then from there you can ask around on which of the schools will be best suitable for her. I wish all the best for yourself and your daughter! It's good youve got an ECHP plan and youre looking into options to help her... youre a caring mother from what i read :) good luck <3
