Hi,

My son has been diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome (not statemented) requires social assistance. He has passed his exams and we are waiting for allocation. Does anyone have any experience of the SENCO at Herschel Grammar? Have searched the forum but can only find a few positive postings for Slough Grammar. :roll:

Hi Sid

I don't think we have had any posts relating to SENCO at Herschel.
Have you spoken to Herschel about their provision, as you have already taken the consortium exam, and I assume have Herschel as your first preference, I can see no reason why you couldn't have a meeting to allay any concerns you might have.

Hi Chad,

I will be going to see the school soon, I was just hoping there might be someone who has dealt with the school in this capacity.

Thanks for getting back to me, I will post again after my visit.

Sid

speak to the senco at your primary school. when children go to next school the senco meet to discuss provision for any children on sen register.

They should be able to organise a transition from primary to secondary. Often with ASD children a lot of prep is needed, maybe photographs of new school and/or a visit to show them where classroom/canteen/toilets etc are.. Meeting any support staff beforehand and an opportunity to find out about routine

Hi yoyo123,

You must have been at the meeting I had with the SENCO at our Primary school this Monday, I was given exactly the same advice. Reassuring to know that there does appear to be some consistency in the approach for transition to Secondary School. I just hope we get our School and the SENCO is as flexible as the one we have at the moment.

I am sure it will be fine I think I am more stressed than my son right now!

Sid

I sympathise with your stress........ I can remember it extremely well (and it was 4 1/2 years ago).... don't worry... as long as the routine, familiarity and support is in place then your son will surprise you. :wink:
