I feel a little sad. We have got a school for my daughter in the area we live in. It’s still not from one of our three choices but it is a good school. It is the only school in this area that is not an Ofsted 1 school, which is probably why we got a place but I feel sad that my daughter will be leaving an amazing school where she has been doing so well academically and she seems to be making good friends finally and now we’re uprooting her. I know she’ll be fine, maybe a little sad but ok otherwise. I hope academically, she will continue to do well and excel and maybe one day we can send them both to private school again.
I do feel a bit angry that we didn’t get our catchment school or even the other schools that are near but the relief of not having to worry about paying for the school is starting to sink in. We have a fairly decent school that we don’t have to pay for. The worst case scenario, if the school is not so great or there’s something else that we don’t like about the school after she starts is that we can apply for another school. However, it’s a little less stressful now that she has a school to go to. I can’t believe how much trouble we have had trying to get a school for our daughter. Maybe we are (I am) being a bit fussy but we just want the best for our daughters and the environment they are in on a regular basis is just as important as the education they get.
Well, like I said before, what’s the worst that can happen? If it’s not great, we just deal with whatever problems we come across. I’m sitting here watching my older daughter swim and realise how thankful I am to have two happy, healthy, good (most of the time!) kids. I’m sure everything will work out for the best.
