Hi all,

Oh god I dont even know where to start with choosing a school. My son was 2 in December 2012 and I feel like I´m way behind on booking his free year and choosing a primary school. I want him to go to the best possible school, I grew up in the middle of nowhere and there was 4 pupils in my class. I dont want him to just be a number in a class. He is my first so have never had to worry about this kind of thing before.
I live in blackpool but am very willing to travel if needs be. Can anyone advise my how to go about selecting a school? Would a visit be allowed? When do I need to start (or am I too late)?
Any recommendations for preschools/ primary schools?

Sorry for all the questions

Thanks Elsie
