Q. We are facing budget cuts next year. The headteacher has asked me to cost out some options that I feel will have major repercussions for our school. What should I do?

Q. A parent has recently taken her children out of the school to home-educate. This family has a history of challenging children and I cannot see how they will be able to educate at home.

Q. We have two looked-after children who are worrying us because of apparent mental health needs. What options are available to us?

Q. I understand that there are some proposed changes to the document Keeping children safe in education (KCSIE). Is this something we should be aware of?
