    Thanks for sharing.

    So now you can look after the children of friends for up to 3hrs for payment without needing to register. I wonder how will they define/ assess friendships?!

    I can't open the briefing ones because they are powerpoints. Do they say anything enlightening?

    I read the updates this morning and have to say the most worrying thing in them is the phrase 'rising threes' omg they really want two year olds in school don't they , so much so that they are referring to them as rsing 3s for the purpose of registration!!

    SCARY.

    I had this conversation with 'my' headteacher this morning ... she doesn't want them in school!
