How sad and shallow!!! But this is what I am finding myself looking for. I know Ofsted outstanding reports aren't everything but it's a start. And ds is desperate to go to a bright, happy, modern school that is miles away from the old, dark, Victorian school he so hated.
Need it to be in the South. Apart from that, anywhere really.
Any school names to throw at me? Please?? Could be juniors or primary.
Anywhere in particular? Can think of a couple in London (although not great on the 'grounds' front, as per nearly all London state schools), but that might not be very helpful. Are you looking to move for a school?
Don't be swayed by Ofsted grade. Pick out the bits of report that are important for you/ your DC. Visit the school. Look at their website. Not all schools suit all children. An 'outstanding' school can just mean they are good at ticking all the right boxes. Their pastoral care may be poor.
That's a point. What year is your DS? Because it sounds like he's school age already and the kind of school you describe is pretty likely to be oversubscribed. Not an impossible mission of course, but quite a mission. Can see why you're casting your net wide!
