If you saw this about a school your child had just left would you think they had a lucky escape?

"This school is fine for children who are above average academically but the school and in particular the headmaster has a disgraceful and unprofessional attitude to children who have extra educational needs and those who come from ordinary homes that don't quite match his own priviledged upbringing."

I didn't write this, honest!

A rather unfavourable review; quite a personal attack.

Is it a fair and true assessment?

(I think 'priviledged' is spelt incorrectly).

I've no idea who wrote it. I'm so pleased it's not just me that thinks it. I found it on a website promoting and rating private schools though.

It's very true though grin. Have you not seen my other threads moaning about the head? ds doesn't fit his profile, that's why he's moving.

if you think you've had a lucky escape this would only confirm your opinion; if you lke the school you'd ignore it because it sounds personal and anecdotal rather than a summary of what a significant body of parents thinks.

I think it sounds really bitchy - I'd strongly suspect sour grapes.

are you sure you didnt write it avenapap.? smile


agree though, most definately sounds like sour grapes - freedom of speech and all that - where did you read it?
