This Guardian article by Lucy Mangan helped me a bit in thinking what new directions to guide our children in when it comes to reading to them. Here's the link to the lists onliine: http://www.guar

Thanks for that. I had a quick look and it seems like a very effective method, putting teachers' professional abilities and development at the centre of a scheme for improving pupils' attainment. That

It is worth saying that all our children have a right to a place at a state school. We need to be calling for a system, and working to improve any system, that allocates places on a fair and transpare

A pan London process has been used for a few years now for secondary school transfers. Sorry to raise that spectre at this stage in your child/family's life but such a system does address some of the

It should be possible to "co-own" some chickens and share the maintenance responsibilities, as well as the delicious eggs and joy of chicken watching. We haven't been away since we got our chooks but

mmmh, they have foxes in the country, too. I wonder what's worse, being preyed on by foxes or being cooped up, literally, in a run? At least they get fed well, adored by the kids and they're not in a

It's interesting to read the other thread on EDF comparing Kingsdale and Charter. They seem to be roughly equally successful and popular. My point is that you'd only put popular schools in your top th

I'm fairly confident I understand the procedure. So, if, as a parent, you deem Kingsdale to be an appropriate school for your child and s/he was offered a scholarship before the deadline for the pan L

As a foundation school they have some autonomy on the selection criteria. Kingsdale's two main oversubscription criteria as far as we were concerned are the scholarship and random selection ones. I ha
