I havent posted about my sons new school since this post.
Here is a quick up date on how its going for anyone that is interested.
So last week my son came home with this:
This certificate is given at the end of four weeks of good behaviour and even better it came with a £5 reward! This may not be a big deal to some people but if you know my sons history of very low self esteem and really struggling all the way through primary school then you can understand why he had a huge smile on his face when he brought this home! He has something to be proud of himself for and I am so proud of him too!!
Last week we also had a blip in PE again! This time a ball was thrown at my sons head and he ran, jumped a fence and went and sat on a bench which for him is good because he stopped. My immediate reaction was “oh no did you get in trouble” the answer? A patient teacher came and sat with him and talked to him about what had happened and told him well done for not retaliating. In primary he would of been shouted at and ended up having a meltdown. In this school he came home with a smile and trusts another teacher!
So fast forward to this week and my son achieved two big things (well three if you count the amazing chocolate chip cookies he made in food technology!). The first, he chose to go on the reward trip this week. He normally chooses the Xbox because he struggles with choices and it’s his default choice. Today he went and did a high ropes course and thoroughly enjoyed it!
The second achievement? He came home with this!!
He is proud of himself again and so am I!! And what a reason to get an award! I totally agree!!
This is a good school and I am still so pleased he is there!
