Spent the morning with Key stage 3, that’s the senior school age group before GCSE / O levels for those like me who know nothing!
These kids properly organised should be in mainstream school, albeit in an HDU, and all the schools they were from had them! What is going on! Why do we not give children the chance to shine when they so obviously want to?
It is natural that some kids need more attention than others, this doesn’t mean that they have to be excluded, what does that do to their moral and basis for judgements of others in the future.
And look who picks up the pieces, a church charity!
