Today I talked to the Head at Lottie’s school to keep her updated – in short to tell her that the divorce is pretty much finalised. I’ve spoken to her regularly throughout the year as Marilyn explained about the importance of keeping school updated from the very beginning. They spend time with the children every day and needed to know about any issues at home that may affect their learning.
School also needed to know about our childcare arrangements as they relate to collection after school. It’s all about safeguarding and needing to ensure that the children go home with the right parent. I’m so grateful that there is no animosity between James and I but you never know what someone will do. I know other mothers who’ve had to take out a court order preventing their former partners from going to the school. Once again, I’m so grateful that this hasn’t been necessary.
