As I have mentioned before my lovely D is a headteacher in South London.
This evening she called me in tears as she had such an emotional day.
Her school is very poor, her children are mostly from very deprived families with all the awful problems it entails. She has a deficit budget and has been battling for days to make cuts where she can. But today was a good day as she learned that the charity Magic breakfast who supplies the school with much needed bagels would be able to carry on for the summer and autumn term. 2 of her staff have also raised £1500 for the spring term.
She also got a call from Prince George’s school (they help her school with clothes and supplies at regular intervals) offering 20 tablets! She was beside herself with joy.
I am telling you all this and sorry for the long post, as I feel so strongly about the state of poor schools and the every day battles that staff encounters.
