Vivienne Durham: From day one, all schools are subjected to inspection
Please give yourself a pat on the back: nothing is more important than choosing the right school for your child.
I’m sorry to hear your daughter is not happy and nothing is more guaranteed to induce real worry than seeing your daughter (or son) miserable at school. As the adage goes, “Parents are as happy as their unhappiest child.”
Have you had an opportunity to discuss your daughter’s unhappiness with a senior member of staff at her current school?
Before accepting a place at another school, it might be wise to try to understand what has made your daughter unhappy, since her teachers and peers seem fond of her and she is out-going and confident.
Has something happened at school which your daughter has not mentioned to you? Could there be any concerns about bullying?
Congratulations on your tenacity in achieving a Year 3 place for your daughter at a newly established prep school.
