Went to a coffee morning at L's new school for September, it was to get some paperwork filled in, meet some of the staff and get to meet some other parents,
Too say I was t impressed is a understatement, I now feel I may have picked the wrong choice school. Teachers were talking so fast it was hard to grasp what they were saying, some not even organised. The one responsible for transport didn't fill us with confidence that we could access transport.
Past experiences left many pupils with escorts and a few with taxi/minibus, now our kiddos will be lucky if they got a escort on public transport, they are expecting parents to take them and pick them up. It would be totally impossible here and has they said it doesn't matter if both of you are in work you would be expected to bring them to school.

It's not just transport that is of concern but I just don't feel it's the right choice, and I don't know what to do!!!!

Rather than going back to the LA at this point, would it be worth contacting the school again to ask for a chat. It may well be that they can settle your concerns before they get any worse. Transitions are always a tricky time and most schools will want to get it right every bit as much as you do.


If you truly don't feel it's the right choice, then you'll need to go back to the LA and see what can be done, either to put plans in place at the new school, or to transfer L to another school's roll. It's quite late now, but I suspect it's not the end of the road yet.

It sounds as if you have a lot of worries. Going back to the school again sounds like a good idea, it may make things clearer in your mind? Not easy.
