To me that speech did not offend in any way, it made me think whether it is the right school for my DD and I knew it was the right school & I felt that if she passed that it will be her school as I knew my DD will be happy & will cope in that kind of environment & its demands. Even though DD has only been there a month, she is happily settled, coping well & found some new friends as well. I also heard that the Head is French.
I have no words to express how welcoming the Head, deputy, the class teacher, head of dept and all were, they made us feel at ease. They have so many activities to make the children get familiar with the school and their class mates or year groups before they start school as well.
