31st January 2017
James has now said that we can’t afford to send Charlotte to private school in September 2017.
I phoned SA Law and Marilyn was in court so I spoke to Kiran as I was just so worried about the sudden change of plans.
Kiran told me about the need to agree nominations for a state school application by 2nd February 2017 (which is the deadline date for late applications) and if this can’t be agreed then an urgent court application would be needed. Kiran explained that a state school application needs to be made in the event that private schools can’t be afforded. Also, if a good state school place can be secured for Charlotte then there may be merits in making an “in-school” year application for Dylan.
Right now, anything I can do to get some sort of control over the situation and start planning ahead can only be a good thing.
