Well, I had a chat with the lady from LEMS and they are refusing to take Benedict! We are not allowed to put LEMS as a first choice for secondary education and they would only have him for a few weeks before expecting him to return to mainstream school! I did point out to her that his diabetes is still unstable and that as a result of all that has happened to him, he is now school phobic! They are not in the least bit interested!
Basically they want me to place in him mainstream school with all his difficulties, watch him suffer and then when he cannot cope intervene. I am not perfect and there are times when I get cross and frustrated, but it is incredulous that the system once again has let us down, badly. I know I have a case for writing to our MP or contacting the local newspaper, but I am tired and that seems like one hoop to many. So we'll keep on plodding along as best we can.
