More School Woes

In January 2014 I wrote this post about my kids school. My kids are still at the same school and there have been some improvements, but today I have been calling around other local schools to see if there are any places for Boo and the Little Man.

Next September Star goes to Secondary School and I believe I’ve made the right choice for her. She’s certainly excited about going so that’s a good thing.
The other two will still be attending their primary school but I’m not happy about them staying there.

The Little Man has had trouble from the start. At nursery his teacher left and was replaced, this has also happened in Reception class, and in year one, the teacher didn’t leave but another teacher took over his class. Such a lot of change for a little one. His current teacher is the best he’s had and it shows because he’s always in trouble. Back in my original post I said he was trouble, but the school didn’t think so. Well they are noticing now! He needs firm control and a proper schedule. He gets bored very quickly and needs to be kept active doing the things he enjoys. He is clever but refuses to write things down. He is excellent at maths, reading and can work a computer as good as me. But he doesn’t like writing or quiet times. He needs to be kept engaged at all times and I just don’t think this is happening. I have big concerns about his teacher for next year as I’ve already seen how her class misbehaves.

Boo, is very hard working and extremely well behaved. She’s also not so clever and has to try really hard to keep up. Her teachers have been wonderful and have understood her extra needs and given her a lot of help. She’s has blossomed educationally. Unfortunately she has had problems with the other children in her class. She has always been a sensitive child, but lately she’s ten times worse and is bursting into tears several times a day. I honestly believe this is from the teasing she gets at school. I am also not impressed with the teacher she is to have next year. I don’t really know him but I saw him at school sports day and I was not impressed with his behaviour and the way he spoke to the children. Not the sort of teacher I am happy for my oversensitive little girl who is being teased daily by her peers.

If my circumstances where better I’d seriously consider home schooling them until I could get them into a better school. I still have another couple of schools to try, but each one is getting further and further away. I am certain now that I don’t want them to stay where they are.

    Oh no! It doesn't sound good at all…If the teachers aren't right for your children they are not going to thrive…Bless them. Wishing you the best of luck in finding a new school.

    I think I need it! It's not just the teacher's the whole school isn't right, it's no wonder it's the only one in the area that isn't over subscribed. 🙁

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
