Hi, Wondering if anyone can give any advice/recommendations of primary schools in Basildon? My daughter is due to start next year and I'm already stressing about it 😬😬 Our catchment school is Willows (we live in Fryerns) but haven't heard great things about it, although it does seem to be getting better. My main concern is that my daughter is quite shy and I want somewhere with a real friendly feel to it and supportive teachers. Would be nice to join a school with friendly parents too 😊
Also, is it worth still putting down a non-catchment school on our application? Or is it a waste of time?
