It's interesting what we like and don't. 
I like cow parsley, beautiful plant. but there's something about hogweed that's ugly to my eye.

hogweed is a thug. Its leaves are so huge they swamp everything.

So huge they absorb a whole lot of glyphosate. If you did it on a Friday after school there's be no worries about poisoning kids. It would be thoroughly dry by next school day

Good idea. I've regretted not clearing properly so many times.

You need to clear it of what you don't want. Brambles, dock and anything large enough to swamp seedlings of what you do want. 

If the big weeds are under control you could sow some annuals for this year.

My preference would be to spend this season clearing and do an autumn sow.

Could be. I have a suspicion this is something not too desirable but I'll be pleased if I'm wrong

I want some more pics, I'm thinking it might be one of the willows, caprea maybe, though the leave look a bit thin.

 Physocarpus opulifolius. The cultivar I know is Diablo but there are others. Lady in Red may be one.
