Tips to Consider When Choosing a School for Your Child

0

As a parent who is also working or in business, you can often overlook the very important issue of choosing a suitable school for your child. This is not because you don't care or don't understand the importance of a good education. It is simply because you are time poor and just trying to cram everything in. So you think you have done the groundwork to choose the right school for your child but certain important factors may slip under the radar.

Outside of sending your child to a school which has bad teaching, a lack of equipment and the like, I believe all parents would be devastated to know that they are sending their child into an environment where they are mistreated, mocked or even physically bullied on a daily basis.

As a parent you want to know that a solid education, coupled with discipline and safety, are at the heart of the school's ethos.

To help in your quest, I've set out below what I think could help busy parents get it right first time.

1. If at all possible try to live in an area which is well known for its "good schools". You will need to know the "school catchment area". The "school catchment area" is the area around the school that you must live in to be able to attend that school as a first choice. This is significant for the "good/outstanding schools" as these catchment areas are usually full of families with school aged children. So if you are outside the catchment area of your preferred school you are unlikely to get a look in. The catchment area could be smaller than you think so check with the school first.

2. Have a look on the school website. Check that the website is updated regularly; that it offers children the opportunity to do extra work online; that the headteacher is involved in the running of the website - a nice smiling face with a "word from the head" is a good sign; and that an informative school newsletter is sent out regularly.

3. Observe the school playground. Stand a safe distance from the school so as not to cause alarm and if appropriate let a school official know what you are doing. Look for such things as: how well the children are supervised during breaktime; how the children interact with each other; obvious signs of bullying. I know you're busy, but try to do this a few times at different times of the day - it may save you many trips to the school later on.

4. Take your child to see the school with you before you make a decision. It's a lot easier for a child to settle into a new school if they have been there previously and had some input in the decision.

5. Forget trying to charm the school receptionist. The decision of placing a child in a school has been removed from the school and is now the duty of the local authority. The local authority does this through their admissions and appeals department.

6. Work closely with the Schools Admissions & Appeals service. The Schools Admissions & Appeals department can tell you which schools have spaces now or how long the waiting list is. You can use this service to decide whether now is the right time to change your child's school especially if you have just moved home or are thinking of moving.

7. Find out who the school governors are. School governors effectively make key decisions about the school. They appoint teachers, decide how the school budget will be spent, agree school policies and act as a "critical friend" to the school. Look at the backgrounds of the governors. Do they seem to have a varied past and experiences? What, if anything, do they stand for? How accessible are they? You should be able to get this information from the school website.

 

So there you have it, Prashin Premchand Rocharam's top tips for choosing the right school for your child. I have four children in four different schools so I decided to work it all out for other parents.

It's worth mentioning that not all parents (and children!) get a place at their preferred school. If you're not happy with the school your child is offered you have a legal right to appeal. You also have the right to educate your child at home, without them going to a school at all. You can either start the process yourself or get help from a Solicitor.

KRIS makes my life worry-free

My name is Ronal Olek. I used to be a construction worker. I am exposed to the wind and sun every day, relying on a meager income to support my family.

I used to think that making money is the hardest thing in the world. I have no higher education and no artistic talent. It seems that I was born like this. Hard work on construction sites every day can only make a small amount of money. Income has become food, clothes, housing, transportation, no dreams, no hope, maybe that was my life before the age of 25.

A morning in 2015. My 9-year-old daughter picked up the phone and said to me in an immature voice: “Dad, is it hard to make money?” I replied: “It's hard, baby, but don't worry, I will go to work”. My daughter said: "Why do I see a news that it is easy to make money?" When I heard that making money is easy, I thought it might be just an advertisement, but I wonder why making money is easy. Following my daughter's fingertips, I saw the KRIS super online store, which changed my life. I clearly remember a slogan in the advertisement: "At KRIS, you can realize your dreams."

My dream? My dream seems to be obliterated by the trivial things of life. I don't seem to have any dreams, but when I see my daughter, wife and parents working for the family, maybe the dream will always be by my side.

I tried to contact the KIRS agent according to the method provided on the webpage. I was lucky to meet my mentor Mike. I asked my mentor, and the mentor helped me solve this problem. So I registered a salary account in KIRS online supermarket. After activation, I become the general agent of KRIS online supermarket. I started to participate in KIRS online supermarket activities and gradually gained a stable income. During that time, my daughter seemed to see my changes. Tell me: "Dad, why are you so happy every day? I always say to angels: "Because you brought me good luck. "

As I continued to introduce my friends to join the KIRS online supermarket, I gained more income and quit my job at the construction site, became a full-time KRIS agent and entered the KIRS community. The people in the KIRS family in the community encouraged each other, we talked to each other to discuss and solve the doubts in life, and I also earned a considerable income. In 2015 alone, I was able to earn 10 million naira every month in the KRIS online supermarket. I have never made money so easily and happily. This income gives me confidence in the future. Even my parents said that they had never seen their son so energetic and optimistic.

As my income in the KRIS online supermarket continues to increase, I bought a large house and a car of my choice for my family in 2016. In 2017, I asked the angel to study abroad because I hope she can have more knowledge and vision, and see a wider world, so that I can satisfy all the material needs of myself and my family. In 2018 and 2019, I continued to work hard to gradually get rid of the previous poor groups and get to know more big people. Now, I have accumulated enough wealth to make my family and myself safe and happy. The rest of my life every day. But I will not stop, because I want my life to be more meaningful and help more friends who have similar experiences with me.

Believe me, when you start to become positive, brave, optimistic, and brave to change your attitude towards life, life will definitely give you good feedback. As my wife said: "You used to hold a grudge and didn't know how to make progress. A pessimist. Now you are like a "God of War" who dares to face any difficulties. This change comes from the soul." Yes, your destiny It depends on your own choice. If you don't have enough courage to change, your life will stagnate. You can only live as a loser, but when you gradually recognize yourself in changes, you will find that your energy is enough to change your life, but you have not found a way.

I thank KRIS online supermarket, thank my angel, thank you for that morning, thank my mentor, thank destiny, thank my wife, thank my parents, thank friends who support me, and thank myself who used to be poor. Now I will spend every day gratefully. Whenever I encounter any problem, I will find a solution. I have the willpower like steel, and the execution power like a soldier. As long as the work requires, I will finish it. No difficulty can stop me.
