Re: Catholic schools in Tooting

Wow, I don’t think I’ve heard of that before. The school will have year 1 and year 2 & year 3 and 4 together in the same classes? does that mean that there will be a reduction in teachers too? How will they manage such a huge range in abilities and learning? That is such a big gap, it’s good for the...

Re: Woman who escaped kidnappers in Clapham Common after a night out launches a ‘get home safe’ app

I think that it is a fantastic idea and well done her.

The reason for the creation of the app …… horrendous! but what she did as a result of the experience. Amazing!

Hi Pemberley, It's a tricky one........ If a school is going to judge a child on their hair style then do you really want your child to attend that school?  In an educational environment you would hope that the school, interviewer or decision maker is able to look past appearance and judge a child o...

Re: Henry Cavendish & Rutherford House schools

Hi Sid_seal, “The ethos and educational expectation of the pupils progress and learning is similar to a private school but not coupled with the snotty attitude of some indies. “ I am not sure why you would find this statement offensive?

Re: Henry Cavendish & Rutherford House schools

We really love RHS! It is a new school and is growing, but we can see that some of the initial teething problems have been addressed and rectified, and is going from strength to strength.  The ethos and educational expectation of the pupils progress and learning is similar to a private school but n...

Re: Baby left in car with engine running?

Excellent and thought provoking article pinkhorse.

Re: Eddie Catz - owner admits voyeurism for sexual gratification

This is actually sick - for 12 years he was doing this.

Re: Independent schools and learning disabilities

Unfortunately, I have to agree with the consensus here regarding independent schools and SEND. What they say and they actual do in reality of what the implement in the school and in the classroom environment are two different things. In primary school, I do think that it is better to select a well p...

Re: Nursery funding

I am watching this thread with a keen interest aswell. I didn't know anything about this!
