Well said Maureen. it's the state schools that are poor and need help from local businesses. These kids have rich parents to spoon feed them, the rest of ours do not.
Who in their right mind would risk money and their child's education by enrolling into a school which is failing and will end up closing anyway- why is it failing? Becuse most of us want to send our children to a school where they can have a broad education, mix with real people and be educated by teachers motivated by the desire to teach, not the financial rewards of a private school. Yes, the kids might get more attention...but you need 15 boys for a rugby team and 15 others to play them. what is the point in your child being educated in a group of only 20 in their own age group/ may as well save your money and teach them at home!!
And it appears 75% of the voters agree!! Chetwynde cannot be saved forever, if they manage it now, its just a stay of execution. These people need to get into the real world ...and so do their kids!
As already pointed out, its only a reduction for the new pupils. I see the CSG are now expecting parents to commit to Standing Orders by this Friday - is there a whiff of desparation? I can only assume they have not reached the 225 pupils they were after as its not being mentioned. How a school can be viable on 225 pupils when 250 resulted in the closure announcement and 300 is the minimum to break even... At least there are 177 realistic parents.
