  16. 16. Before you apply  Visit as many of the schools you are interested in as you can. Open Evenings/Days start at the beginning of September and some schools only offer 1 chance to visit.  You can apply for up to six secondary schools, listing them in order of preference.  Consider each school's admissions policies and previous years' application rates to see whether your child is likely to be offered a place.    Your preference schools can be in Royal Greenwich or in other areas, but they can't be independent (fee paying) schools.  You don't have to list six schools, but the more schools you list, the better your chances of being offered a place at one of them.

  24. 24. What nextWhat next  The Boxall Profile is a simple online tool used by man schools across the UK to track pupils SEMH (Social, Emotional and Mental Health) and well-being within the school setting.  We are doing this to support the class. We are looking for gaps in their interactions, identifying and targeting the specific area for development and then planning to meet this need.  It is a resource that we currently use in another class within the school.  It is completed online by a teacher who knows the class well.  Data online is anonymised.  We would use the data to get a whole class overview. This would enable school to: ◦ Identify if there are any specific needs. ◦ Set targets for cohorts of pupils. ◦ Have a targeted approach to support the pupils as a whole
  25. 25. What can you do?What can you do? PLEASE continue to encourage your children to follow the golden rule: No blame. Keep communicating with school Try to get a balanced view Let school staff deal with school matters
