Interested in others thoughts on this. Scenario. Very challenging young girl. Diagnosis of autism. Has had enhanced support from Aitism Outreach Team. Has virtual 1:1 support with now funding from LA as govs had dug into reserves to support child. Child is a climber, runner from class, spends little or no time in class, does not respond to a pay adults, has been turned down twice for EHCP but finally is now having assessment for this. Recently and not for first time, she trashed classroom. Following this, threatened her 1:1 with pair of scissors. I excluded fixed term for week and a half leading into half term. We have worked so hard with this damaged child. I believe School leaders have to try everything in their powers not to PX. But I think I may have been too weak here???
