Starting School

Last week I went along to a meeting at nursery about Little man moving rooms, moving into the pre schoolers room, the room before he starts Primary school. Yes it's over a year away  and little man is still a toddler in my eyes, but I have already  started to make enquiries in the application process and think about the schools in our local area.

The application process in theory is a choice based process that allows you to submit your preference of primary school via your local authority. However as we live on the boundary of two local authorities the process is maybe a little more complex for us especially considering that the year of little man's birth was considered to be a high birth rate year. 

I have already started to make enquiries with local schools to find about admission criteria and to started to contact head teachers about the possibility of coming to view the schools. Deciding on a first school seems like a massive decision to make and I am hoping that I just get the feeling of knowing that it is the right school for my children, like any parent I want my children to have the best possible start, and feel strongly that both education and social aspects should not have to be compromised. 

The thought of not getting my first or second choice school and having to look at the appeals process or alternative is an added pressure to making the right decision. Then comes the thoughts of School uniforms, packed lunches, before school clubs, after school clubs. I am sure all will be come clearer over the next few months especially once that application pack come through the door.
