Life. School. Update. 2

Bestfriend, she of many previous wise words and catcher of tears, has embraced positive thinking about schoolgate-gate. She arrived with her family for pizzas and plastic car games in the garden last night. As our kids frolicked in the evening sun I realised she was toting a bottle of Champagne.

Why? To celebrate getting into school, of course! said she. Champagne, with pizza, in the garden, on a week night. In your face OFsted and reputations and sharp elbows; bring on sports days and conkers and gym bags and plimsolls at your local state school.
