Siyeo, couldn't help noticing that you also contributed on the Waiting list thread in which you mentioned you were on the waiting list for Honeywell.Siyeo wrote:I have lived off Broomwood Road for over 20 years and live in sight of one of the preferred state schools in the area. As my wife has mentioned we have been more than impressed by Alderbrook School and the attitude of all of its staff. We did have reservations, but we have been quickly put at ease.
In a way we haven't been put at ease with our first choice of school, which continues, along with the council to choose to do nothing about the people that rent close by to the school to get their children accepted and then move outside the catchment area and even the borough at the expense of the local residents. We continually see said schools children traveling by car in the opposite direction on the walk to Alderbrook. This I can only think leads to a fragmented neighbour hood and a ridiculous amount of unnecessary vehicles on the road at drop off time and pick up.
This poor moral judgement of endorsing the short term renters over and above the local people and not supporting the latter, makes it very hard for me to feel happy about sending my children to said local school. I feel loyalty and integrity are vital aspects of a childs character and if these are not being shown from the top, I am happy for my children to have no part of that school and the potential "dog eat dog" attitude that will follow.
