Our expert says:
I find it deeply offensive that any school would be so irresponsibly nosy and thoughtless as to ask such a question. Maybe I'd mark it :"For discusion at interview", rather than "None of your business" as I'd ne tempted to say ! And I think a human rights organization should take action against the school if they refuse to interview you for not answering that question in the questionnaire, or reject a child for any such reason. They seem to have folie de grandeur, and an over-inflated view of the sort of matters they can or should deal with.
For a school to place these as the first 2 questions, implying that they are vitally important TO THE SCHOOL, is folly indeed.
Have you the option of phoning the school, to speak to someone seniot ( not merely a secretary ) to ask about the question and emphasize your concerns ?
