The Charity Commission's latest ruling will send an uncomfortable jolt through the independent schools sector. Two private primaries, St Anslem's in Bakewell and Highfield Priory in Preston, have been told that they are not doing enough to justify their charitable status and need to give more access to disadvantaged youngsters.

My wife died a year ago. She was only 35 and left me with our two young children. About six months after her death, I met a wonderful woman of 40 who has children of her own, and we decided to live together. I can never forget my wife, but life with my new love is amazing and the children all seem extremely happy. We have planned to marry in the autumn, but my late wife’s parents are openly hostile. They say it’s too soon and won’t come to the wedding. What can I do?
Yours sincerely, Ben
