I also live near Leeds, so not far away. We come under Wakefield education though so it would be different people from the LEA. As far as the LEA goes, I make sure I have kept a few folders and filed his work into them so they can easily see what he’s done. They’re usually pretty nice.
They organise events every couple of months for our area, and I know a few live nearer Leeds, and they’re worth going to. We’ve visited some museums and castles with them and got to meet other families.
Just enjoy it. They’ll be days when you have an amazing time and others where you wonder what on earth you’ve let yourself in for. But it’s the best thing we ever did, and i’m sure you’ll love it.
