Hornsby is actually only 20% according to friends that are there.
It looks to me that the Heads could have all got together and agreed on this figure - for the service they provide, 40% would have been a fairer figure (and Reception should be free, its pointless)
Thanks, friends mentioned 25% at Hornsby. To be honest 20% is still a brilliant saving to be given without parents even having to ask. We would have been happy with that instead of 12.5% and we will see what happens after half term.
I agree that the heads getting together would have been a wonderful solution but sadly when some schools are privately owned the directors step in and make these decisions leaving the heads to pick up the pieces. If I was the head I would be off elsewhere as this is the second PR nightmare that she has had to deal with in the past year.
I agree that reception is pretty pointless as far as what can be achieved in home schooling and despite the teachers efforts. I think most parents would be happy to cover basic costs and pay something. Yet our school has offered the same as the rest of the school. It is appalling, even some nurseries are offering 50% with work being sent homes in packs each week.
