What works in schools

As well as being recently diagnosed with OA, in my other life I am a primary school inclusion manager.
The school I work in has recently almagamated from seperate infant and junior schools and so we are starting to look at how this will affect our practice.
At present there is a change of SENCO at the end of year 2, but one thing I have come to appreciate is the importance of continuity of care from professionals.
I thought one good use of my time while on sick leave is to find out what parents, and their children really find helpful.
Please post any suggestions, things you find helpful, how important is it to have a key member of school staff involved, as well as things that make things more difficukt for you and your child.
Many thanks

    Ooooh, you've triggered a memory, Slosh. Many moons ago a parent was putting together a guide for schools but I can't remember who and I can't remember when. I will go away and have a think but in the meantime, if you need something to occupy your mind, you could try doing a search on here; try to avoid the word school though, I suspect that is a frequent flyer on this board. :) DD
