To be a bit lost as to how to move forward

I'm really unhappy with DDs school. There aren't any other places in any schools she could feasibly get to and I work full time so can't educate her - I don't think she'd want that anyway.

Do I just need to accept her school is rubbish and put up with it? Feel so helpless sad

What year group?

Why not put name down for a move: a place could come up?

She's year 7.

What makes it rubbish?

You need to give a bit of info about why you think it’s rubbish?

Standard of teaching - get a tutor
Lack of friends - activities such as guides / girls brigade / sports

Hi...can I ask if your daughter is happy"there?

She's extremely unhappy. She has got into trouble over very minor things and has been extremely distressed. There have also been a lot of problems with bullying.

What are the minor things?

Have the school said what they’re doing about the bullying?

Did you post yesterday about this? I think you absolutely have to try to work with the school and their pasterol system to get the best possible experience for your dd. Things have got off to a poor start but it’s very early still so there must be hope to turn things around?

I don’t blame you for feeling upset but take some time to set up some meetings and if possible get some advice on getting school onside. I feel for you, nothing worse than seeing your child miserable.

Yes, matilda and I spoke with them today. I'm not hopeful. They were offhand and defensive and I am very concerned.
