My childrens school is awful at letting parents no anything they regulaly get times and dates wrong and correct them usually a couple of days in advance at most or even on the day. They rely on texts for last minuite communication and as im sure most of you know this isnt the best form of communication. Recently they sent a text at 2pm to say that the afternoon club was cancelled due to the teacher being off surely they knew that sooner in the day?

Maybe ibu but it drives me mad. The worse case was i was starting my new job on the monday after half term i had checked and double checked that breakfaat club was on only to get a facebook message at 11pm on the sunday to say sorry it wont be on as the woman who does the shopping has been on holiday so isnt ready. Its just crazy. Lukily my mother in law wasnt at work that morning so could watch them.

Myself and many parents have complained about this but it doesnt seem to change. Honestly i think they think parents sit at home all day waiting to pick the kids up.

Sorry this really is just a bit of a rant mainly set off by the constant texts about the school fayre thats changed dates 3 times and is now starting at 2pm on a school day afternoon and how they will let us know in a couple of weeks weather we need to pick the children up before then or not. Ffs the bloody fayre is in a couple of weeks. Its so infuriating.

Am i the only person having these problems or are other schools the same?

This would make me furious! It is essential that schools are organised as working parents plan their lives around it. Sure, last minute things crop up but it is the School's responsibility to make plans around them so that families are not adversely affected. I'm sure the school expects parents to rally around, fund raise and contribute to events. Their communication is awful. I would complain very strongly-it's not good enough!
