Bit of a long shot but I was wondering if there might be people with experience of primary school aged children at schools in different directions or other challenging situations on here.

Basically DD (9 now, poss very nearly 10 to start in yr5) could go to a school in central Manchester but we can't think of a way to get her there the couple of days a week that one of us isn't available. We live between Firswood and Old Trafford tram stops (so close to each) and the school is on the doorstep of the tram stop at the other end but frustratingly, this doesn't really help at this age. So I just wanted to check that there wasn't some kind of chaperoning service or private school bus that I didn't know about before we discount it.

What I really need is a reliable older teen who could watch the younger ones eat breakfast before they went to college themselves as the potential new school actually starts so early the dropping off adult could be back in time for the school run!

You could ask the school whether there is a breakfast club; their own, or nearby, with drop-off at school. Or try a local nanny, or get to know a local family at the school.

My children go to school 10 miles apart. One child has SN and goes to a school 6 miles away and the other primary aged child goes to a school 4 miles in the opposite direction. I manage to get them both to school and collect them both by utilising breakfast and after school clubs for the child at primary school. It costs me money but is the only solution to getting both children to the most suitable schools for each of them.
What school are you thinking of? Is it Cheetams (assumption based on being near tram stop).

Thank you, I think I was grasping for a solution that wouldn't impact the other children too much and wouldn't be too eye watering cost wise. The school place would have actually saved loads on tuition but we can't make the transport work. Never mind, was a risky decision to make for such a young child :)
