I dont get how they can afford all those children on one wage?? Ive just had my 3rd and all ready worried ill have to go back to work early as maternity pay isnt enough. We've been saving what we can during my pregnancy and doing bank shifts but it will only last so long. I would love more children but can neither afford it and im such a high risk pregnancy, same as sue, its not worth risking my life and leaving my kids without a mother. Counting my blessing that I have 3 beautiful girls, not many people are fortunate to have a baby at all. Wish sue would put her health and her other children first, instead of her need to have more children

It is topped up massively with tax credits and child benefit

That Instagram posts really shows how much their kids are going to struggle. To learn effectively they’ll need a private space where they aren’t being disturbed by their siblings, especially for the older kids. They hardly have enough space on that table. And you can clearly see in the background that Katie is teaching one of the boys (Josh?). Should she not be focusing on her own work? Doesn’t look like very much work is going on, not a surprise at all.

I think that pic is purely for social media, it looks very staged.

I feel like there's still some kids missing? Is it James(?) that's younger than Katie and still in secondary? Isn't he part of Sue's 'classroom', or is he not good enough to make the cut for social media? Is Katie still in school or had she left?

I think Katie is in college studying childcare. She’s the only one who can effectively study from home!
Yeah... James is missing but I think he is year 11 age so his GCSE have been cancelled, nothing to study for I guess?

Thanks for the clarification! Wow, I didn't realise that they had cancelled GCSE 😮
