Such a stressful time for parents. I think for the first 3 years, parents are the main drivers for children’s development. I will say, however, Honeywell and Belleville have a very active PTA, so strong feedback loop between child, parent and school.
I suggest you try your allocated school first and if it doesn’t work after a year or two, look to move. There is always movement further up the years and you also avoid the bottleneck at reception.
Ps. Prefer thread not to be distracted by a better system than catchment area, but the lottery system is even worse. Good intentions are ruined by the realities. Having lived in US for a little bit, the lottery and bussing in kids is unpopular. You end up with ridiculous scenario where you live a couple of meters from your local school, but needing to travel miles to your allocated school. It harms local communities, makes it difficult for extra activities (due to commute time) and also against the environment (lots of unnecessary school trips). It will also force more middle class kids into private- so actually makes it less likely for different economic backgrounds to interact. Whilst catchment area system has their shortcomings, it beats the top-down social re-engineering favoured by Jeremy Corbyn and the likes.
