I have mentioned before what a school environment can be like for an autistic child. Unfortunately that can apply to the neurodivergent community in general.
I have been asked what I would change but to be honest there is too much I would change. I would literally need the opportunity to start from scratch and build from there.
In 2011 Jamie Oliver was in a TV show called Jamie’s Dream School. I actually really enjoyed that program and thought there were several things he got right. So I’m going to be bold and ask you, Jamie, if you are willing to do a second series with my involvement. Include neurodivergent and neurotypical staff as well as pupils with the idea of making a truly inclusive school environment which is safe and really conducive to learning for all children. It’s a massive undertaking but I have lots of ideas I can discuss with you and suggestions for others to approach to get involved … if you do decide to take me up on it. Thank you, and please get in touch with me if you would consider it.
I need to ask for some assistance from the community for this post. If my posts have helped please comment below (only if your comfortable doing so) and let me know if you back this idea. I am hoping Jamie Oliver will personally see the post and any comments.
Please feel free to share any of my posts and please like or follow to be notified of future posts.
All the best
