What an afternoon that has been. I went to pick small boy up from the bungalow, it’s where they are sent for internal exclusions as a sanction for bad behaviour. He wasn’t there and they had no record of him supposed to of being in there even though the lady I spoke to was the one who sent me the email. See picture below. I was the. Sent to reception as I had left clear instructions for him to be ready for collection at half two. I was met by the lovely receptionist who I do feel sorry for as she was confused because she didn’t know small boy was to be picked up. Her confusion was soon met with anger, frustration and embarrassment as it then took forty minutes to find him. Yes that’s right, they had lost my son.
We just has enough time to het home, get changed, have cake and custard, and get there in time, all thanks to my best friend for being our taxi lady.
Small boy has been signed off until after half term !! As the dr has never done this before they don’t do sick notes for children. She was also annoyed at the fact it would be different if it was a physical illness but agrees it isn’t fair to put him through all of this.
The plan is to hurry camhs up and the school to get off their arses and get support out in place
Small boy to have work sent home and for me to work on his mental well being, including combatting his self harm and thoughts of suicide
Then he can go back after half term, fresh start with support in place and all teachers up to date
This is the plan, no doubt the school will not be happy but he’s going to do work here at his own pace, which will hopefully be better than school where he isn’t able to stay in a lesson for its entirety anyway.
