Please, could someone confirm whether the verb "to ensure" requires the command subjunctive?

For example,

I work hard to ensure that my children go to a good school.

In this sense,

I work hard to ensure that my child go to a good school. Is that ok this sentence?

Thanks!

Ensure does NOT use the command subjunctive; it should be "to ensure that my child goes to a good school"
