Primary Education


Save Our Southend

Hockley now on loan to Rayleigh
Throwing this question out to the SZ family....

My daughter who is now 4/5 months needs a placement at a primary school as you need to look at options early to get a place, we live in Rayleigh (as hockleys favourite son I am only on loan to Rayleigh and some day to return) and we are looking at various schools and that's all well and good but I was privately educated at St Michales in Leigh and I am a big believer in private education also I would like Church of England like I was as I think a church school teaches good wholesome ethics.

To send our little girl private would cost me about 3K per term which we can afford at a push as me and Mrs TrueBlue both work, and this is further helped as my dad would be quite happy for her to go private and pay for it himself, the problem I have is we plan to have another 2 kids but no way could I send them all private.

So my questions are what's your views on private education? And if you could only send 1 out of 3 is that fair? Or should you just send all to a state school?

Thanks peeps
