As your child approaches the end of primary, the transition to secondary school can feel daunting. If you want to take control and get informed, I am running a three part course to help you.
In this session you will learn about the different approaches schools may take and why. You will explore your own values and how to use this to help you investigate the different options available. You will learn more about the different types of schools available and the pros and cons of different approaches.
You will leave feeling confident that you know what you are looking for in a school and why.
In this session, you will learn how to find out information about schools. There is a lot of good data available to you if you know where to look. You will also learn how the data is produced and how to use it effectively.
I will also show you how to get information which isn’t easily accessible unless you know where to look and who to ask!
You will leave with an action plan of what information you need and how to go and get it!
In our final session, you will learn how to use Open Days and school visits effectively. I can give you tips for how to look underneath the surface and get a feel for the ‘real’ school.
We will also have time for a Q&A to ensure you have all of the information you need.
You will leave with a ‘School Visit Plan’ so that you can make the most of these valuable opportunities.
