Dionne F Welsh started this petition to West sussex county council (local authorities)

I am the mother of a autistic child with learning delays. My child may struggle with mainstream school with her learning, however can cope with the structure of the school. Her behaviour is fine and she enjoys it ,but is quite behind. My options are to send her to saint anthonies in a different town ,on a bus full of children who display challenging behavior and a school to which i feel she will feel more anxious at .The other option is to send her to a mainstream school with a special support unit ! Which is perfect for her however again i am having to send her to a different town. Also we are fighting for spaces.she could be waiting years ! I asked many why this is? I have been told many theories , the demand is not there for Bognor regis? ...there are plans but not established. I have sat and cried feeling my child has limited options and the ones she has means sending my 6 year old to a different town in which it would be difficult for me to get to if something goes wrong. I went to view the sen school and was furious when they told me there are primary schools with support units also in there area . Why have we not ? Why do we have to send our children to another town? To a school which i feel is extreme for my child ...Why is our town not equipped for the sen children in it ? My child copes fine in mainstream but she needs a little more help with her learning at a different speed to others, why can't she and other children in bognor regis have this without having to travel to another town at 6 years old ? 

My request to solve this i know we will have to fight for but please build a unit of a good capacity onto a primary school . I can promise there will be plenty of applications including mine. Every parent wants the best for their child ,and having sen children we have done nothing other than fight, fight for ehcp, fight for diagnosis, fight for their needs to be met outside our care, so now i fight for her to have eduction close to home, a happy medium between a sen school and mainstream, please can every one sign this petition and help our sen children and the sen children in the future . Even if your child is not in bognor regis and you have same issues i would really appreciate all the support we can get. All the children in this town deserve to be taught close to home . Most mainstream children get that . Why can't our sen children? I have many friends with sen children so i know the demand is there , please help to secure a mainstream unit for the children who can suceed with just a little more support. Why does chichester have a sen school and primary schools with units and we have to fight for a place ?why are our children in this town entitled to their own school in their home town. The waiting list in the other town is awful .Thank you for your time to read this and i am praying for our sen children it goes far .
