Parents waiting to collect year five children
P1: Have you thought about September and choosing a new school?
P2: No, not really, best to let nature run its course, the local school is really good.
P1: Oh, I overheard that some parents are doing some kind of preparation? Have you?
P2: Donâ€™t be silly, we may have done a wee bit of familiarization, but we donâ€™t approve of tutoring and hot housing!
P1: Phew, thanks, I had a horrible feeling that we were missing out, look forward to seeing you at the local school in year 7.
P2: Donâ€™t be silly, we will move house or go private.
Sorry for hijacking your thread but having been through it once, embarking on it for a second time, with a third to come, I have experienced the playground politics of mis-information.
The mythical magical tutor probably doesnâ€™t exist and like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbowâ€¦â€¦
A little and often, morning and evening (tutors canâ€™t do that) preparation can go a long way.
This site gives you access to so much more information than the school gate, oh and we are here 24/7, well almost.
P2 sounds like Margo from "The Good Life"
