If your child has received the result that you were hoping for that's great - but do have some consideration for those who might not have had such good news. Please don't tell your child that in future they should only associate with those who will be heading to the same school as them, and get them to phone their less successful mates to impart the news that they're no longer considered good enough to be friends with your child due to their exam results.
I'd hope it was just an isolated outbreak of insensitivity, but if there is anyone else out there planning on doing something similar, just stop and think how your child would feel if the boot was on the other foot and it was them being told that they're not good enough to be friends with - and then do unto the children of
others as you would have done unto your child
. Friendship groups will change of their own accord once they're mixing on a daily basis with a different set of children at a new school so please just let it happen naturally rather than kicking other peoples children when they may already be down.
