Clare did you receive the information I sent?
He finishes school at 16 then will have to go to college for two years. I don't know if college qualifies as secondary education? but either way he has to stay in full time education until he is 18.
I would encourage him to stay for as long as possible as he will need life skills training as well as academic training, but the decision ultimately is up to him. With the amount of school refusal I get, I really don't know how long he will remain in education. I believe he is entitled to stay until he is 25 (once he has the statement) but whether he will, is really anyone's guess.
Hello Clare, yes I can see where you are coming from and thanks for your reply. I guess my maintenance will continue while Aiden is in college education. Fingers crossed! x
