We got in the car today to the shops. She found a (ptinted out) picture in the back seat that she had coloured in - rather well I might say.

But

There accross the top of the page was "netmums.com" shock

What am I going to do - how do I explain that that is not the way she wants to grow up?


wink grin

Stride into her school all guns blazing and prepare for battle I should think wink

YABU to use the term gobsmacked. Hate hate HATE that expression grin

NormaStanleyFletcher Sat 08-Oct-11 20:10:26

I just don't know what to do. It seemed like such a nice school, their results are fantastic and she is so happy there!

YABU.
If you send your child to a Netmums school you should expect Netmums teachings and values to be at the heart of the curriculum.

But the prospectus never mentioned which parenting site they are affiliated to. And I never thought to ask. I know that is My bad, and I am paying for it now.

NormaStanleyFletcher Sat 08-Oct-11 20:21:26

Lol at team Edward's swear filter

Shocking, I think you need to leave the bastard school at once

KeepInMind Sat 08-Oct-11 20:32:22

This would be a deal breaker for me

Birdsgottafly Sat 08-Oct-11 20:34:35

Netmums is endorsed by L.A's and PCT's, for some reason, you can log in for free from those booth things that they have in One Stop Shops etc.

I find this shocking, hun do you need a hug?

NormaStanleyFletcher Sat 08-Oct-11 20:41:24

Other thing is we are probably moving in three months, how far could they I.fluence her in that time? Could I correct it over the next couple of years?

I'm surprised that the tickers along the bottom of your DD's reports and letters home didn't give it away sooner.

PomBearAtTheGatesOfDawn Sat 08-Oct-11 21:18:15

You know where it will end - there will be glitter! She will breeze into the house and say "what's for tea hun?"

NormaStanleyFletcher Sat 08-Oct-11 21:46:33

Nooooooo. Not hun shock

baudetdepoitou Sat 08-Oct-11 21:48:40

Just scrawl "Fuck the fuckety fuck off" across the sheet and send it back in.

worraliberty Sat 08-Oct-11 21:50:09

You should be grateful it wasn't Mumsnet wink

I can see the report now...."All the children are passive aggressive little shits and the parents are a bunch of cunts"

However, at least no-one takes term time holidays grin

I'm not normally one for overreacting but I really think you need to have this out with the school. heads need to roll for this

Sleepglorioussleep Sat 08-Oct-11 21:51:02

Apart from Attilla the...the question is, do netmums have any say over the admissions policy and do they provide any funding? Will mumsnetters have to subscribe and post at least twice a month for two years in order to secure a place? And if they become a moderator will it further help their case?

heleninahandcart Sat 08-Oct-11 22:04:59

There is only one thing to do. Get one of those California Sect Busters in to kidnap DD from school and de programme her. It takes several months but this is her future we're talking about.

YANBU

I would be unspeakably angry, spitting mad and livid.
I would wonder if I was being UR and ask a load of strangers for advice.

Once they told me I was BU I would argue with them and tell them that they were wrong and then tell them a little bit more information that changes the whole story.
I need to practice my flouncing though because I haven't done that yet.

AIBU?

NorfolkNCovern Sat 08-Oct-11 22:20:39

You must march into the staffroom and complain loudly and with loads of swearing

Chuck some naice ham at them and threaten them with a Poo Pouffee™ if they refuse to include sweary bollocks and SRE (AnyFucker style) on the curriculum.

HowlingWereWolfBitch Sat 08-Oct-11 22:21:49

Did you give her a bath afterwards?

AHH!
