We phoned the school today as the cheque we sent with the forms had not been cashed and we got paranoid
. Apparently they don't cash them until September and we will be getting another information pack around the end of June.
Also their current Yr6 teachers are filling in reports on the children this month, DD was asked for her thoughts by the deputy head who was doing it today. This means if they want to be with in a class with anyone in particular then the Year 6 teachers probably need to be told relatively soon.
I also wanted to offer something to anyone who might need it. I know some of the girls are coming a long way, reliant on public transport or walking by themselves properly for the first time. We live ten minutes walk from the school, on one of the main roads between the school and Colchester town centre. I would be happy to be an emergency space if the girls get worried or frightened on the way to school or going home e.g. if they get followed or teased by some one they want to escape, transport chaos, miss the bus, got confused or lost. Somewhere they could wait safely if they needed it.
