Hi Ladies. I'm moving back to Shepperton/Walton area at the end of Easter and am looking for school places in years 1 and 4. Our closest school is Ashley C of E but it's obviously oversubscribed. My son is number 1 on the waiting list for Year 4 but my daughter is number 15 for year 1🙄. Does anyone know if there is much movement at the school or should I just forget it and move on? The council have advised that there are places in Walton Oak Primary and Cranmere Primary in Esher. Does anyone have experience of these schools at all? I have read a thread about bullying from pupils who are travellers at Walton Oak which has really unsettled me even though it was from 2013! Is there anyone with children there who can give me an accurate picture of the school now? Also Cranmere is an option but is quite far away. Is it a nice school and is it very academic? My son has mild sensory processing disorder and needs a little bit of extra help so am really looking for a caring school but also one that would push him a little bit! Burhill Community school have a year 4 place and I'm wondering whether it's worth putting my son in and waiting to get a place for my daughter. Any advice?
Please help as am a complete stressed Eric at the mo😱.
