Re: How much pocket money for 7 yr old?

For us it is £2 and not linked to anything but they can loose 10p each time they misbehaved, are rude, fuss about homework, etc. What is lost is lost for that week.
First few weeks they lost quite a bit, now they ve learnt to stop themselves at the second warning.

Re: please sign this petition for a vote on the Brexit deal

Re: Nappy Valley: any school with idiotic rules worth flagging?

Pfew what a long post to ask about uniforms. :shock: You should spend this time going to the schools at pick up time and talk to a few parents/carer there about pastoral care, ethos, values and achievements.

Re: Advice needed - Family camping for beginners!!!

We never do electrics personally. We ask reception to plug our phones while in the shower. For us. What we love in camping is being close and doing things differently.
