Back to school this morning, and suddenly we were told that my son couldn't go back to his class in Kindergarten but had to move up to Key 1. My son got very upset as he was looking forward to being with his friends. He has changed schools many times over the past two years and we were looking forward to stabilizing this year. But now the school deems he will learn better in a higher grade. I am worried he might be moved for other motives, such as making more space in his quickly growing kindergarten.
I wish that I had been better prepared for this transition. Any advice on how to help my son adapt to yet another change? And it will also be a change in language (the school is quadrilingual!)
I was very distressed and need to find a strategy for coping.
