We have IPEA funding people!!
Individual Pupil Resourcing Agreement provides additional resources to schools to support an individual pupil’s needs, the funding ensures schools have sufficient resources to meet the needs of a pupil with High Needs. We applied for IPEA in July, finally, it has been awarded!
Teddie’s transition into reception could not have gone any smoother, we had a few issues with lunch cover the 2nd week but they were ironed out soon as they arose.
Teddie is eager as ever to get into school, it’s so refreshing to see how happy and engaged he is.
Teddie’s teacher and LSA’s are angels sent from heaven, the time and support they have given Teddie is astonishing. I tell everyone who works with Teddie the approach is everything for him & first impression certainly go along way in Teddie’s book.
I honestly feel at ease and relaxed knowing Teddie is in safe hands while he is at school.
Pecs is working really well in the school setting, Teddie has even got changed for PE, something I never thought he would do! With the added support from his teachers and watching the other children, he did it, he actually did it!!!
I’m kinda feeling slightly redundant the last few days I’ve tried hard not focusing all my time on Teddies needs while he’s at school and more on my own, it’s surprising how much organising & time Teddie requires just so he can communicate!
Teddie is very particular (obsessed), although he is not adverse to change he likes to keep to routine as much as possible. At school, Teddie looks out for me at the end of the day, I wonder how he would be if one day someone else picked him up. Gareth collected him from preschool once- he cried and cried!
I want to try and take a few steps back from Teddie, allow him to make his own choices and not rely solely on me! A few weeks ago I would have never allowed myself to think about easing off but dealing with my anxiety issues I feel more relaxed about certain situations.
I am my own worst enemy, I’m sure I’m not the only parent (mum) who rants about having to do it all, kids, house, jobs, dogs and now add studying into the mix, I have so many offers for help but I never take anyone up on their offer as although I want the help I don’t- make’s no sense I know!
Trying to write when Teddie is around is so hard, like now for an example All I am currently hearing is the ‘I’m a gummy bear’ song blaring out of Teddies kindle, instead of the normal head-butting version we have what sounds like a cassette tape (showing my age) being played in slow motion!!!! Will add the link below for you all to appreciate or to block it from your devices before your child stumbles across it!
Have a good day, people……
