I'd just like to say to everyone that yes, it's nice to get your child into a 'good' school to try to give them a better start, but yes - as someone else has already said - the standard of everyschool fluctuates so it may not be that good by the time your child/ren gets there anyway.
What is the MOST important is the amount of time you, as a parent, spend with the child at home; how you interact; how you behave in front of them and the education and example you try to set for them OUTside of school hours. THIS is what will have more influence on your child's well-being and education than any other factor.
