A record of attempts to form a channel of communication with my home educated sons potential new secondary school.
1 - October 2016, phoned school to ask if there are any vacancies. Snotty response from secretary that it's not information they can give over the phone.
2 - Applied online for school place.
3 - End of November 2016. Phoned county to ask if he has a place . Response that the forms were sent to the school 9th November and not to phone them as they will contact us.
4 - Sent email to school to ask when we will hear - no response. No phone call.
5 - We waited until Christmas school holidays were over and phoned county in January. Response that our son has been allocated a place from end of December! County informed us to expect a call from the school.
6 - No phone call received, so we phoned school, twice and eventually managed to arrange a meeting with head of year.
7 - Went to meeting this week. We have now waited 2 days for a phone call to arrange son to visit school!
8 - Phoned school this morning - put on hold then got cut off. Eventually asked for the head of year to phone us back.
9 - Still waiting ...
Honestly doesn't bode well or instil any confidence, that they are going to be able to accommodate a child with severe anxiety. Also we haven't received anything in writing that he even has a place!
Trying to be positive, but it's wearing thin slightly.
Moan over ...
