I'm new to this forum, please don't bite and forgive me if i am posting out of turn but would love some advice
i moved my daughter to a private school 4 years ago as she is gifted and our local primary was not pushing her. I received an apology from our primary's govenor's too late after i had moved her to an independent school.
Unfortunately the school hasn't turned out to be what I expected academically. Great for concerts and trips and residentials and productions and very hot on sports, singing lessons etc
I kicked up a fuss in the first year after they did nothing and it didn't go down to well. After that I wasembarrassed and just let them do their own thing, they essentially gave her slightly harder work than her peers but it was still far too easy.
Every year at the end of the year the class teacher has agreed that she has coasted. So now she is in Year 6 with 11+ an decisions as to what I am going to do about her schooling next year and I haven't a clue. I asked the school at the end of summer to move my daughter into either a Year 7 or 8 class for Maths this year (as they have for other children including the headmasters daughter
) It is already nearly half term and they are still assessing her for this. I would have thought they could sort it based on the last 4 years assessments. They are now saying it is too late for her to move class they can't accomodate it timetable wise and she can be given year 7/8 work but while she is sat in her own class and they head of maths will look in on her now and again
I hate kicking up a fuss, i have 2 other children in the school and the headteacher already had an altercation with me as I refused to let my daughter wear a miniskirt for PE as I felt it too short.
Can anyone offer me practical advice on how best to deal with this, anyone had similar problems or most of you guys in grammar/state schools
thanks in advance for reading and anyone who takes the time to reply x
