OK so year 4 is almost over and we are thinking about secondary school's alread for RB as we get his application forms not that long after they go back to school in September.
I was wondering if any parents/career could advice me what to llok for in a secondary school for a child who has delays in his literacy and has 1-1 support for that on a daily basics some days twice a day, has asthma, hypoglycemia, is hyperactive (queried autism/ADHD), has a heart murmur which has been linked to his asthma flare-ups and last week was diagnosed well 80% diagnosed with addison's disease.
I was thinking along the lines of:
Easiness to find the school for paramedics
Frequency of school nurse
How many members of staff are first aid trained
Literacy support groups
Medical trained staff
Is there anything I am missing or do you think I have it covered.
I have already rang 2 secondary shools an both of them have literacy supports groups and on site school nurses every day and one of them even has everty member o staff first aid trained and medical trined and every child who goes to th school with a medical condition are assigned a medically traine member of staff and both schools are easy to find too. Best of all btoh shools have classes dedicated to cooking as my son wants to become a chef and open the first allergy free restaurant in Nottinghamshire. I really hope his plans go ahead as I have night mare having family meals out as it is so hard finding places tht eal with dairy free food. I always rin and say do you cater for vegans and can you guarrentee the food is vegan and not contaminated at all by diary products
