Child With Cp - Supervision In The Playground
Hi all...new to this. My daughter has started P1 here in Scotland and just started all day last week. She does have an auxiliary in the mornings - this had to be argued because the school "forgot" she was registered disabled and had informed me that if the school couldn't cope with her tripping up etc then she'd be excluded from school. This statement was soon altered!
She has been coming home from school with her knees bandaged up as she'd taken a fall in the playground. The school have a "buddy" system - an older child in the school looks after a few children at break etc. On Friday I received a call from school just after lunch to say she'd taken a fall and could I pick her up. I went down to school (all of a 3 minute drive) to find they were having a fire drill and my daughter being carried out in her teachers arms!!
School could not tell me what had happened but my daughter informed me that her buddy had helped her up a climbing frame and lost her grip......thus her falling to the ground.
I tool her to A&E and found she had a broken leg....a cast is on now for 4 weeks....I hope school will still accept her in with her cast as I don't want her to miss the early years letter forming etc.
Just wondered if anyone else has had a problem with supervision and would appreciate any comment on the matter raised.
