Things to consider when choosing a Primary school
Looking for your child’s first school can be an exciting but also a daunting time if your child has additional needs/disabilities. There are many things to consider when choosing the right placement. What options are available for our child - mainstream or special provision? My child has a Statement of SEN what happens regarding choosing a school? How do I go about getting a place at a special provision school?

Then once your child is at school how do you make sure that their needs are being met? If the school is struggling to meet your child’s needs, what can you as parents do about this? What help can you get when moving from one year group to the next or one school to the next (infant to junior). What happens when your child is due to move from primary school into secondary school?

This section will help you answer some of those questions that you need answering during the primary school years.
