In the interests of research I have just read the following book; A Parents’ Guide to Primary School by Elizabeth Grahamslaw. Published by Virgin Books ltd ISBN 9780753511077 It is full of very useful tips an information in readable blocks. With examples and quotes from teachers and parents. It would be good to read if you were choosing a primary school, plus it is good for a recap during any time that you child is in primary education. There is even a piece at the end about the transition to secondary. Some of the tips and advice would cover any number of years that your child is in school. First published in 2004, it has been revised, and as education policies constantly change it may be a little out of date for some, but it has some very sensible material.
