    Default Special school go-ahead

    CONTROVERSIAL plans to build a new special school in Liverpool are set to get the green light.

    Education officials want to relocate Lower Lee special school from Beaconsfield Road, Woolton, to the site of the former Harold Magnay special school in Woolton Hill Road.

    Almost 50 boys with behavioural and emotional difficulties would be based at the site, next to St Francis Xavier’s college.

    But more than 100 residents have objected to the plan, fearing an increase in problems such as crime and traffic and a potential fall in house prices. more

    Those boys with the behavioural and emotional difficulties should be, at least, given a chance.

    Anyway house prices are on the way down.

    I remember reading the Echo 1-2 months ago and the headmaster of this school was begging the locals to show some understanding.

    Lower Lee is more or less the end of the educational line for kids, its basically for those who've been kicked out of everywhere else in the city.

    Harold Magnay was never a mainstream school in any case!

    Cool

    is there any more news on this or an update as I am a special needs teacher in Brisbane looking to come back & work in the UK and preferably LIverpool...

    Behaviour Management is my speciality, the secret (for want of a better word...) is to redirect or to create a diversion in their lives by giving them either responsibility or redirecting them to something which they like doing.

    Given the right program and the right counselling and the right amount of staffing and committment it works as well...

    thanks...

    Lemmo...
