Primary class sizes up in Haringey

Finishing up day at the office as we break for recess. No – it’s not time off! I wish it were – but there is a constituency to look after and articles to write and preparation for the next term – and in all my spare time ‘cos there is so much – it’s the local elections.

In the evening I join a women’s business networking group in Crouch End for a drink. I really enjoyed it – and thought all the women there were absolutely great and doing all sorts of interesting things. What is so wonderful is how many of them just work around having children – starting their own thing and operating from home if necessary. I should know – I did it too!

Also talk to colleagues about our local education plans. You may have seen the latest figures on school class sizes in Haringey – primary class sizes in Haringey are now higher than they were when Blair came to power in 1997. So much for Labour’s promises on education!
