Am so happy someone started this thread - till now I was in the impression that my DS's school head/deputy head/teachers are really peculiar - one of a kind - they never missed a chance to show us 'having big dream' for our kids is wrong, being ambitious parents is a sin and mentioning 'grammar school' is like foul language to them!
After reading other posts in this thread I realised it is , infact , epidemic
Am still waiting for my DS's school to acknowledge and say something nice to him or at least make him feel like he is not doing something 'wrong' after he gained place in the top 10 in all 3 sutton/wallington school mocks and gaining 270+ in tiffins. Nope,not a single word but all they talk is Level 6 SATs!
And now my DS doesn't even want to tell anyone in his school abt these results. 'I shouldn't say' or 'Nobody talks abt them' is all he says
