    Good to hear from you after all the years. Lovely to hear home life is good and he hasn't been excluded for over a year from school!

    Sorry to ask but is he Statemented? Also you say he is 13 yrs old, do you know what level he is accademically functioning at? (ie age or national curriculum level).

    Most LEA's wouldn't choose to send a child to a special school (mainly because of the extra cost) unless a. The parents wanted special school OR b. The mainstream school say they can not meet your son's needs.
    His learning difficulties and behaviour would have to be pretty bad to get a place at special school

    Let us know a few more details so that we can give a more accurate reply.
