Re: Calling Earlsfield frustrated parents...

This situation is extremely frustrating and unfair for those involved. Mosaic was approved as a 1 form entry faith free school directly by central government.

Re: Can anyone tell me how to stop child benefit payments

Its not true that you still have to receive child benefit payments to protect your NI. You just have to make sure you have applied to be eligible for child benefit, then if you are at home and your partner earns over £60k you stop your payments.

Re: Cap to bankers salary

I would like to rephrase what I said about 'highest quality graduates' to say 'the graduates with the best skills needed to work in banking'.

Re: Reading Advice

The oxford reading tree website - oxford owl has e-books. And there are 2 subscription websites called Reading Eggs, which is online I think, and Reading Chest, where they send you books - a bit like LoveFilm kind of thing.

Re: What do we need to fix?

I think the site is working really well now, and looks good (except I agree with shuffling around the home page to show the posts higher up but I know that's being worked on) My only grumble would be that I don't like posts being put onto Twitter. It puts me off posting on the site, especially if it...
