Sorry, but I'm having my next school crisis .
My DS2 has had a bit of a raw deal since yr1 with depressed teachers not covering the curriculum , endless supply teachers and then no teacher for 6 months ..... I have had to try to fill in the gaps at home and although I think he is where he should be ( he's now in yr 4) , I do feel sad and rather cross that he may have been in a completely better place if there hadn't been this history. The reason I'm worried again is because 5 parents have just spoken to me saying they are worried that the current teacher is having problems teaching , because of lots of boys in the class with issues and coupled with mixed ages and little teaching support ..they say their children have not achieved the levels set for them , particularly in maths and I have noticed also DS2 has dropped slightly in maths too.
These parents are telling me, I think to see if they can squeeze any info from me as DH is a governor so it's a bit awkward, but on the other hand it has got me worried , as I have noticed these things too. I just said to try and do bits and pieces at home , but people seem reluctant to do this and I think instead they are planning to stage a big complaint which I think isn't fair on the teacher as I think she is trying her best under difficult circumstances. I think I should keep out of it , but on the other hand I'm distressed again that my poor son is putting up with a sub standard education.What do you think is the best move ? Sorry by the way, when all my children are at Secondary in 2014...I won't be boring you again ! ( unless there's problems with GCSE, uni etc !)
